Its similarity with the ironwork which adorns the doors of Notre Dame of Paris is striking. For at that time, the school of Paris was especially influenced by Oriental models. Indeed, when the crusaders arrived in the Orient they discovered a fully developed style. The taste for these rich foliated scrolls became predominant in Europe, where craftsmen such as Biscornette, who forged the ironwork on the doors of the Cathedral of Paris, treated this style with the skill of the true master. No. 6 and 7. Examples of one of the types of manuscript ornamentation in use in France from 1150 to 1200, during the final period of the French Romanesque style. Ms. n 41, Public Library of Grenoble. No. 1 and 2. Margins from a Latin bible of the fourteenth century'. Monochrome painting, in silver and red. Conventional plants and fantastic animals. Ms. n 53, Public Library of Lyon. No. 13. This monochrome was painted in Italy, probably in Florence, around 1400. It Is taken from a Latin breviary which belonged to the Azzini family. This manuscript is part of the Bibliotheque du Palals des Arts, in Lyon. No. 11. Very widespread type of marginal decoration of the fourteenth and early part of the fifteenth centuries. The Manipulasflorum, from which this motif is taken, was painted in France around 1420. Ms. 251, Public Library in Lyon. No. 3, 5, 12 and 14. Motifs of plants from the frescos and sculptures of the former abbey of the church of Saint-Antoine de Viennois (lsere); fifteenth century. No. 10.

These splendid scrolls are examples of one of the styles of manuscript ornamentation used in Italy towards the end of the fifteenth century. Ms. 723, Public Library of Lyon.
