Parchment · 135 ff. · 32 x 22 cm · 14th century
Lancelot du lac [Arthurian Romance]
Old French prose manuscript, missing the beginning. It was probably written on sheep parchment, which was processed roughly. The initials are rubricated in red. Space was left for decorated letters, which were not executed. The text at the end is damaged. The 135 leaves are separated into 19 quires. The first and last leaves are missing. The manuscript probably is from the library of the Counts of Neuchâtel since it is mentioned in an inventory from the library of Jean de Fribourg and Rudolf von Hochberg, which was prepared at the end of the 15th century. In 1813 the governing council gave the manuscript, along with 16 other pieces, to the library of Neuchâtel.
