Description:
CCCC MS 463 is a very small, late thirteenth-century portable Bible, perhaps made in North France. However, it contains an English calendar of Sarum use, and it might have been made in England. Apart from depictions of scenes of the Creation in the Genesis initial, the decoration is limited to coloured initial letters.
