An extraordinarily accomplished nineteenth century illuminated manuscript, put together for love

~ La Messe de Mariage.

France Made in honour of Anais Eugenie Le Camus by Charles Alexandre Derome. 1886-1889

Elaborate 46 page luxuriously illuminated manuscript on vellum in gilt, silver and numerous of the Marriage Mass in French with each page with different rich, sumptuous borders of painted flowers including poppies, daffodils, fritilleries, columbine and sweet peas, redcurrants, strawberries, gooseberries, fish, birds, butterflies, insects and cherubs. The borders surround double column lettering with decorated initial letters and small decorations punctuating the text. All bound apparently by the artist or his wife in deep purple velvet over boards with embroidered initials on the upper cover and the remains of two clasps. In superb condition.

An extraordinary and exquisitely written and illuminated manuscript of the wedding mass apparently made by Charles Derome apparently for his future wife Anais Eugenie Le Camus, probably the grand-daughter of the French artist Jules-Alexandre Duval Le Camus, to celebrate their union. The binding has her new initials embroidered on the upper cover ‘A.D.’
