Guess the Manuscript XVI

Welcome to the 16th  instalment of our popular Guess the Manuscript series. The rules are simple: we post an image of part of a manuscript that is on the British Library's Digitised Manuscripts site, you guess which one it's taken from!

Guess the MS
Are you as surprised as we are to find an umbrella in a medieval manuscript? The manuscript from which this image was taken will feature in a blogpost in the near future.

In the meantime, answers or guesses please in the comments below, or via Twitter @BLMedieval.

Good luck!

Update: 'Félicitations' to Reconstitution Médiévale Documentée, who guessed correctly that this little umbrella is from the Harley Psalter (Harley MS 603, f. 15v).

To find out more about the Harley Psalter, tune in next Saturday morning for an in-depth look at how the Psalms were illustrated. 

There'll be another Guess the Manuscript at the end of the month!
