Stolen Leaves and Cuttings [10]



The Mocking of Christ France
Large historiated initial on a leaf from a Book of Hours
France, Picardy (maybe Amiens), c. 1325
157 × 117 mm


I have been asked to spread the word about a number of leaves and cuttings that were stolen from a private collection in London a few years ago. Rather than post them all at once, I will aim to do one per day for the next several days, and then do a cumulative list that you can print out and keep handy for future reference. Please circulate the details to colleagues. If you see, or have seen, any of them please contact info@samfogg.com
