Book of Hours

Item Info

Item No: mcai110161
Additional Title: Book of Hours
Language: Latin
Folio Number: front
Source: Rare Book Department
Notes: Jacob?s Dream
Notes: 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.
