Look at this lovely 15th century manicula!
As I was working through one of Archbishop William Scheves’ collected volumes of incunabula, I came across one of his wonderful manicula (or fist, or index finger, or pointing hand). This volume is a collection of 15th century Netherlandish imprints, and this particular manicula was found in the margin of Saint Bernardino da Siena’s De duodecim periculis quae superveniunt peccatoribus in ultimo fine (Antwerp: Mathias van der Goes, ca. 1487-90). I love the detail and time that went into this lovely hand and sleeve!
