Customer Question

Hi Nora, another item here. I am not even sure what you would call this. I'm thinking it is a verse or a song of some kind, but can't decipher it.

Hi There~
Thank you for the request here and for your patience.
This is a page from a Catholic Choral hymnal.
The material is vellum and this was made by hand.
This can date to as early as the 14th century, or 1300’s.
Here is a link for you to comparable that were sold:

Even those these are very old and collected, they oddly (to me at least) tend to garner $100 - $200 per sheet when sold.
