Title

E0105 Leaf from a Dutch Book of Hours

Subject

Book of Hours

Description

This is one of only two leaves from its source manuscript currently known to exist; the other is in the Rauner Library at Dartmouth. It's of particular interest not only because it's in a vernacular language (i.e, not Latin), but because of the inscription on the back of the mat which shows that Ege prepared it for his daughter Betty (later Mrs. Elizabeth Freudenheim, d. 1996) to give to one of her sixth-grade schoolmates as a Christmas present in 1937.
