  • How to
    request
Hours of the Virgin, according to the use of Paris: preceded by a French Calendar and Capitula from the Gospels, and followed by:
  1. The Penitential Psalms with Litany (fol. 97)
  2. Hours 'de Sancta Cruce' (fol. 116)
  3. Hours 'de Sancto Spiritu' (fol. 124v)
  4. 'Les quinze yoyes [sic]' (fol. 130v)
  5. 'Les cinq playes' similar to the vii Requestes (fol. 137)
  6. The 'In Vigilia Mortuorum' (fol. 140)
There are some fine illuminations (in which Waagen detects a Flemish and a French artist, Treasures of Art in Great Britain (1854), iii. 73), borders, etc. The volume seems to belong to Northern France (Stt. Ivo of Chartres and Lupus (Leu) of Sens are in gold in the Calendar, and the former also is in the Litany). A leaf is lost after fol. 12.
