Ms. book of hours for the use of Rome; calendar in French; written and illuminated in Bourges, France, ca. 1473.
This manuscript was made for Anne de France, as evidenced by the arms of France and the emphasis on the name Anne, before her marriage in 1474 to Pierre de Beaujeu whose arms are not present.
Decoration: 107 full-page miniatures, 24 calendar illustrations, illuminated borders; arms on fol. 43v (shield bearing arms of France, crowned); manuscript has unusually rich picture cycles; Hours of the Virgin has 49 miniatures rather than the standard 8.
Artist: Jean Colombe and workshop.
