Rare Book Department
This miniature precedes Terce of the Hours of the Virgin, the beginning of which can be found on the reverse. The choice of the Old Testament story of Jacob's Dream is unusual. In the Middle Ages, though, the steps of the ladder stood for the virtues. The original manuscript was made for a member of the aristocratic Dinteville family from Burgundy whose coat of arms appears on the reverse in an initial.
