Summary

This Book of Hours was made in Paris in the early sixteenth century for the Use of Rome. The calendar, in French, is embellished with miniatures of the zodiac and the labors of the month housed in architectural frames (fols. 1v-4r). The Gospel Lessons are accompanied by five small miniatures showing John's eagle (fol. 5r), Luke's bull (fol. 5v), Matthew's angel (fol. 6r) and Mark's lion (fol. 6v). They are framed by "camaïeu d'or" architectural borders containing the four Evangelists (fols. 5r-6v) and musical angels (fol. 7r), each embellished with drollery vignettes in the lower borders. A miniature of the Virgin and Child with angels begins the Obsecro te (fols. 7r-8v), framed in an architecural border with drollery vignette, and is followed by the O intemerata (fols. 8v-9v). The manuscript also contains an elaborate half-page miniature of Adam and Eve (fol. 9v), which would have faced the opening page of the Hours of the Virgin, now missing. The Hours of the Virign features other ornate half-page miniatures, namely, the Visitation (fol. 12v), the Adoration of the Magi (fol. 18r), the Annunciation to the Shepherds (fol. 19r), the Presentation in the Temple (fol. 12r) and the Coronation of the Virgin (fol. 26v). Folios 10r to 15v are framed by marginal miniatures showing Virtues (for Matins of the Hours of the Virgin, with the first two missing) and Prophets paired with Saints (for the beginning of Lauds). These marginal figures are accompanied by banderoles inscribed with verses of the Lord's Prayer and Credo, respectively. The Hours of the Cross (fols. 29r-29v) is illustrated by four marginal vignettes per page showing episodes from Christ's Passion. The miniature of the Pentecost (fol. 30r) begins the Hours of the Holy Spirit (fols. 30r-31r). The book also features two facing full-page miniatures showing the Death of Uriah (fol. 31v) and David and Bathsheba (fol. 32r, with the incipit re-written in gold), which begin the Penitential Psalms (fols. 32v-37r), and an ornate illumination of the Allegory of Death, which begins the Office of the Dead (fol. 40r). The Suffrages contain half-page miniatures of Saint Christopher (fol. 58r) and Saint Francis of Assisi (fol. 59v). The Office of the Dead includes a detailed series of twenty-three marginal miniatures from the Dance of Death with banderoles containing titles for each figure in French in the lower panel borders (fols. 40r-57v). The miniatures of the Visitation, Pentecost, and the Allegory of Death were painted by an illuminator from the worskshop of the Master of Jacques de Besançon, while a shop assistant to Jean Pichore illuminated the Annunciation to the Shepherds, the Presentation in the Temple, and the Coronation of the Virgin.
