This elaborate Book of Hours, dated between 1485 and 1490, is one of the finest examples of the Flemish illumination of the late fifteenth century, and contains the most ambitious devotional programme by Simon Marmion and his assistants, the Master of the Houghton Miniatures, the Master of the Dresden Prayer Book, and the Ghent Associates (?), (see Kren, Renaissance (1993) and Illuminating the Renaissance, 2003)
