W.423, Book of Hours (for use of Rome)


This Book of Hours was created by an associate of the Master of the Dresden Prayerbook in either Ghent or Bruges ca. 1500-1510. There is an allusion to a possible patron through reference to a deceased female named "N" in Office of the Dead. Due to the fragile state of the illuminations, it was only possible to digitize the exterior of this manuscript.
