German Illuminated Manuscript

One of the pages of this illuminated manuscript is a miniature featuring a full armorial bearing of a nobleman.  The shield is surmounted by two crowned helmets each carrying a separate crest and full mantling.  The colours used in this miniature have been well preserved.  A gold frame surrounds the miniature, and further gold highlights embellish the coloured passages.  The document itself appears to be written in German and has decorated initials on the front page.  It contains signatures on the back, and traces of red seal wax.
