Collectarium, use of the Saint-Chapelle, Paris, in Latin, illuminated manuscript on vellum, Paris, 1619 [and c.1769]
A Collectarium containing a unique collection of prayers specific to the use of the royal Sainte-Chapelle in Paris, adorned with attractive decorated initials.

255 x 180mm. ii + 116 + i, complete, ff.28 and 29 apparently misbound during the 18th-century re-bind, contemporary foliation, up to 18 lines, ruled space: 210 x 130mm, rubrics in red, musical antiphons on four-line staves in red, numerous illuminated initials on coloured grounds or vice versa, some incorporating flowers (the leaves cockled and occasionally stained). French 18th-century red levant morocco gilt, gilt edges (worn, losses at edges and spine).

Provenance: (1) Made for the use of the Sainte-Chapelle in Paris; a colophon on the final leaf gives the date of completion as 1619. The second text was bound in at the end of the 18th century. (2) 'W Featherstonhaugh': 19th-century ownership inscription on one of the front flyleaves. (3) Rev. Dr Roderick Terry (1849-1933): ex-libris inside upper cover; his sale, American Art Association, New York, 14 February 1935, lot 86.

Content: Collectarium for the use of the Sainte-Chapelle, Paris, containing some musical notation (‘Collectarium seu Absolutiones, Benedictiones, Versus, Capitula, Orationes, a Domino Celebrante Dicendae ad usum SS. Capellae Parisiensis’); bound with the text for the ‘Processio Matutina Paschalis Sacrosanctae Capellae Parisiensis’, apparently copied from a printed edition dated 1769, ff.1-116.
