Ancient Manuscript Review 90 : Antique French Parchment Manuscript ( 1640 CE)

This is a parchment written in old French about the purchase of land. I purchased this manuscript quite some time ago. Eventhough I am more interested in Arabic & Islamic Manuscripts, I acquired this manuscript to compare the western writing tradition with the Islamic writing tradition. The material used in this manuscript is from sheep leather written on both sides. There is a date 1640 CE written on the bottom of the deed.
