Re: [BKARTS] Henri Bohic



Another exemple from Elisabeth Pellegrin, Bibliothèques retrouvées, Paris,
CNRS, éd. 1990, p. 50 (La bibliothèque de l'ancien collège de
Dormans-Beauvais à Paris):
for a missal produced by Thevenin Langevin in 1382:
- copyist's salary: 24 livres
- illumination: 5 livres 4 sous (2.305 "grosses lettres" and 2.214 "verses")
and 5 livres 12 sous for "Joachim Troislivres", illuminator,  who made the
"histoires" and the large letters of gold and blue.
- the hiring of an exemplar : 32 sous
- binding: 32 sous
- "fermeilles" : 48 sous
- "pipe": 6 sous 4 deniers
- "chemisette" and "toille": 8 sous
- "enseignes": 3 sous

Très intéressante, cette petite facture, mais ce qui me fascine, c’est le fait que le salaire du scribe revient à un sou près à la moitié du coût!


Hasard, ou calcul après-coup? Il serait intéressant de voir la façon dont cette “facture” se présente dans l’original...
