Manuscript Identifier:
CCCC MS 4
Manuscript Title:
The Dover Bible, Volume II
Origin Date:
xv and xii
Material:
Vellum
Language:
Latin.
Dimensions:
21 x 14
Provenance:
The Dover press-mark has disappeared but there is no doubt of the provenance., I think the artist who illuminated no. 4 was not the illuminator of MS 3. It also seems to me that the illuminator of no. 4 and Eadwine, the artist of the Canterbury Psalter at Trinity College, have a good deal in common. It is antecedently probable that this Bible was made at Christ Church Canterbury, of which Dover Priory was a dependency.
