|注意：||Ms. picture book Bible; illuminated in Paris, France?, ca. 1244-1254.
Ms. also known as Crusader Bible, Morgan Crusader Bible, Book of Kings, Kreuzritter Bible, St. Louis Bible, Shah Abbas Bible, and Maciejowski Bible.
Execution of the miniatures has been attributed to 1) France, probably Paris (H. Stahl; D. Weiss, The Book of Kings); 2) northwestern France (A. Stones); 3) England (R. Branner); 4) Flanders or Hainaut (A. Stones), ca. 1244-1254.
There are three other extant folios originally from this manuscript: two in Paris (BnF, Ms n.a.l. 2294 fols 2, 3) and one in Los Angeles (J. Paul Getty Museum Ludwig I 6 - 83.MA.55).
Folios 43r and 43v are sometimes referred to as folios 46r and 46v, respectively. This alternate foliation was assigned to this folio in the Cockerell facsimiles of this manuscript (1927, 1969) as well as Weiss (1998). The facsimiles reconstructed a codex from all extant leaves, combining the Morgan Library's MS M.638 with the three leaves that were previously removed from the codex (see note above). The facsimiles then refoliated this reconstructed codex, which resulted in M.638 folios 43r and 43v being given the folio numbers 46r and 46v. For further information, see Voelkle's Codicological Analysis, as well as the appendix to the Codicological Analysis in Weiss' The Morgan Crusader Bible : The Picture Bible of Saint Louis (1998). The Morgan Library refers to the last folio in M.638 as folios 43r and 43v, not 46r and 46v.
Decoration: 43 leaves illustrated on recto and verso with full-page miniatures in double register compositions subdivided into two halves by a central colonette, representing more than 300 separate episodes.
