Cheers Steve,



there is mention of books made of "parchment and vellum" as early as 200 BC; 
unfortunately it gives no details about what and where.

But I'd guess "Roman Era" is the earliest reasonably possible date for the VM. 
The Romans had crossbows, too AFAIK, and some of the costume depicted _could_ 
be some very fancy Roman dress.

I'd personally still very much subscribe to the 15th cty.
