BNF Richelieu Manuscrits Français 143
Évrard de Conty, Échecs amoureux, France, Cognac, XVe siècle, Robinet Testard
Jacobus Magni, Archiloge sophie at the Bibliothèque Nationale de France Gallica website. "Failures in Love"
The skerricks of information about this late 15th century parchment I've found indicate that the original text by Évrard de Conty, doctor to King Charles V, was copied and illuminated by Robinet Testard for Louise of Savoy. It is a work of moral allegory inspired largely by le Roman de la Rose. [thanks spyda man]
