Ms. poetry, written and illuminated in Naples, Italy, ca. 1475.
Texts: 1) Giovanni Gioviano Pontano, Carmina varia, dedicated to Laurentio Miniato (fol. 1-34); 2) Gregorio Tifernate, Amoris triumphus (fol. 35-37).
Decoration: 2 decorative title pages, one with full border and historiated initial, the other with minature framed by architectural cornice, unidentified arms on both pages (party per pale, or and azure, on the dexter side four barrulets sable), 57 painted initials historiated with putti and other classicizing images.
Artist: Lilian Armstrong attributed the illumination to one of the best followers of the Master of the Putti (see Renaissance Miniature Painters and Classical Imagery, p. 120); Albinia de la Mare attributed it to the Putti Master himself (see Friedman, p. 280).
