Description: - ff. ii + 248 + ii - Bound, s. XIX, in tooled red velvet with light blue watered silk endpapers; gauffered gilt edges. - The first portion of the manuscript, ff. 1-202v, was copied at the beginning of the fifteenth century in two stages (probably concurrent). A first scribe copied the more usual texts of a book of hours, including the short hours of the Holy Spirit and of the Cross; he collaborated with the first artist who worked in the style of the Master of Luçon. A second scribe and illuminator were responsible for the less common material (the short hours of the Trinity, the Dead, All Saints, the Eucharist, the Virgin and St. Catherine) which was then meshed with the standard texts to convert the material to a full week of specific devotions. At the end of the century, ca. 1490, a later owner in the south of France added ff. 203-244 and had the illuminations of the first part retouched, sometimes extensively, by an artist whose style derived from that of Jean Colombe. This later owner's coat of arms, f. 203: or a tree proper fructed or on a chief azure a rose gules between 2 leaves (?) in pale or. His name may have been "Julian," as that saint is invoked in the suffrage on f. 210, and the initial "G" appears in the prayers, ff. 216, 220, 224; the prayer on f. 218v reads "…Sana me domine et libera me de isto languore B. et a presenti tribulatione G. ab omni infamia…" Acquired ca. 1830 by Sir John Hayford Thorold of Syston Park; his book plate and monogrammed label on the front pastedown; his sale, Sotheby's, 12 December 1884, lot 965 to Quaritch; in the Quaritch General Catalogue 6 (1887) n. 35711, and in that firm's Hand-list (1890) n. 11. The manuscript belonged to E. Dwight Church (1835-1908); his ex libris on the pastedown with "400 Eng" penned on the lower margin; in his Catalogue…of English Literature (1909) vol. 1, n. 400 with a plate of f. 21. A pencilled note on f. ii calls the manuscript "Heures de la Rose," using the name first applied in the 1887 Quaritch catalogue and taken up in the Church catalogue. Henry E. Huntington bought the Church collection in 1911. - C. W. Dutschke with the assistance of R. H.
