Description: 
Written in handsome large Gothic characters, with ornamental capitals. Initials and leafy stems in gold and colours forming half borders. The leaf is from a Psalter dismembered by Otto F. Ege for inclusion in 42 specimen sets of medieval manuscript leaves he compiled in the 1940s under the title "Fifty Original Leaves from Medieval Manuscripts". It is listed as no. 25. The leaf came onto the market in 1981, sold by Maggs Bros, London, to the Friends of the Australian National University Library.
Description: Manuscript fragment on illuminated vellum containing: the beginning of the devotional prayer Doulx dieu, doulx pere, sainte trinite (in English called The Seven Requests to our Lord or Prayer to the Trinity). The text begins partway through the initial request, and includes the second request and third (incomplete) requests. It is notable that the prayer is abridged.
