Abstract

Manuscript: Leaves from two Books of Hours, France, c. 1475.

The ‘Book of Hours’ was a prayer book for the laity which developed from the late 13th cent., becoming extremely popular by c. 1400. Usually decorated, sometimes lavishly, and catering for the wealthy, this is one of the commonest types of medieval book to survive today. There were also printed versions.

University of Tasmania Library, uncatalogued.
