Summary

This short rhymed poetic work by Georges Chastellain, entitled L'outré d'amour pour amour morte, is an example of a Roman à clef, a narrative describing actual events presented as a fictional account using altered names. The manuscript was likely produced in Western France in the 1460s or 1470s, judging by the style of the bâtarde script and the four unframed miniatures (four more spaces for miniatures remain blank). The manuscript in question was once owned by Jacques Thiboust, a noted humanist book-collector in early-sixteenth-century France, and bears his stamped bookplate on the verso of the front flyleaf and the verso of folio 37, as well as various other ownership inscriptions hand-written by Thiboust. This manuscript appears to be a previously unnoticed addition to Thiboust's library.
