"This catalogue of Books of Hours, the "bestseller" of the late Middle Ages and Renaissance, presents twenty-six Books of Hours mostly dating from fifteenth and sixteenth centuries. Many of these Books of Hours are previously entirely unknown and unpublished. An introductory essay explores how illuminated Books of Hours pictured the piety of medieval readers who used texts accompanied by visual aids in their devotions."
