PublisherFree Library of Philadelphia
- Initial M
- Initial C
- Stylistic similarities between these initials suggest that they were taken from the same large illuminated choir book or set of choir books of the type found in Italy from this period (see, for example, Lewis E 10). The cuttings have been pasted onto decorative cardboard, however, making it impossible to determine if they are indeed from a choir book. Lewis E M 20:2-3 were illuminated by Master B.F, an anonymous Lombard illuminator named after a pair of initials found in one of his illuminations. Some art historians have identifed him as Francesco Binasco, an illuminator documented at the court of Francesco Maria Sforza, Duke of Milan (r. 1521-35).
