This sumptuous codex, illuminated by the master of the city of ladies, belonged to the Dukes of Burgundy and was produced between 1414-1419. The donor was John the Fearless, Duke of Burgundy (1404-1419). It is the oldest surviving copy of the French translation of the Decameron commissioned by the Duke of Berry.
The Decameron is a compendium of narratives, whose main plot recalls the plague epidemic that devastated Florence and all of Europe in 1348. One hundred stories full of suggestive eroticism.
