PublisherFree Library of Philadelphia
- Initial H with the Birth of the Virgin Mary
- This initial probably begins the first response of the first nocturn of Matins of the feast of the Nativity of the Virgin (Sept. 8): 'Hodie nata est beata Virgo Maria ex progenie David ...' (Today the Blessed Virgin Mary was born of the line of David). The illumination has been attributed to the Sienese painter Pietro di Giovanni d'Ambrogio (or Ambrosi), active in the second quarter of the fifteenth century, or a close follower of his. Although primarily a panel painter, Pietro di Giovanni is known to have worked as an illuminator as well.
