A modest Book of Hours written in gothic batarde script in brown, red, and blue ink with numerous French rubrics, this manuscript includes four full-page miniatures. Ten additional pages feature large illuminated initials and elaborate borders decorated with colored flowers on liquid gold grounds. This decorative style is similar to a type of French Books of Hours that had widespread popularity at the end of the fifteenth century.
