Psalster

This psalter was produced in a monastery in the Diocese of Augsburg in the mid thirteenth century, as shown by entries in the calendar and litany. The decoration includes six full-page miniatures, ten historiated initials, and seasonal and zodiac roundels for each month. Related manuscripts include New York, New York Public Library Ms. Spencer 11 and Augsburg, Augsburg University Library Ms. 1.2.qu.19. The text has been supplied with marginal notes throughout in Latin and German, and a fourteenth-century deed discussing property of the Bazth and Ladon families has been included as a flyleaf.
