Manuscript on parchment of Book of Hours printed in Paris, Thielman Kerver for Guillaume Eustace, 20 June 1500. The illuminated leaves, from a Book of Hours for the use of Rouen, between 1475 and 1500, were inserted into the printed Book of Hours before the present-day binding was made (ca. 1600). Copied by one hand in Northern Gothica Textualis Formata.
Headings in red. Heightening of majuscules in yellow. Rectangular line-fillers decorated with red, blue and gold; 1-line dentelle initials; 2-line foliate initials; 4-5 line historiated initials (artt. 3 and 14); arch-topped miniatures (described above) above 3-4 lines of text, accompanied by 3- or 4-line foliate initials. The pages containing miniatures or historiated initials have full flower and acanthus borders, which may contain additional scenes or grotesques (see artt. 2, 4, 5, 11, 12). The woodcuts are coloured by hand throughout the book. Text pages containing a 2-line foliate initial have outer-margin or inner- and outer-margin borders (the latter on ff. 42 bis r and 64r).
