Quick Reference

Book of Hours produced for the renowned bibliophile and patron Jean, Duc de Berry (1340-1416). Delisle (1884) identified the manuscript (290×210 mm; Chantilly, Mus. Condé, MS. 65) with a description in an inventory made after the death of the Duc in 1416: ‘several gatherings of a very rich Book of Hours, richly historiated and illuminated, that Pol and his brothers made’. This attribution has received general acceptance and has also provided the manuscript with its name.
