According to the  Maine Monitor a 24-year-old college student from Colby College Maine bought an illuminated manuscript at an estate sale. Will Sideri, only paid $75 for the piece which reportedly until now was "lost." Sideri just happened on the sale in early September, and while shopping the framed illuminated manuscript leaf caught his eye. The single page is written in Latin script and musical notes are painted in vibrant inks, demanding attention. Sideri said the framed piece was labeled with a sticker that read,

“1285 A.D. Illuminated manuscript on vellum. $75.”
