Compound Item Description
Title Book of Hours, Use of Reims (Binding)
Date approximately 1380
Description CONTENTS: Calendar of the Church year -- Lessons from the Gospel -- Office of the Virgin -- Hours of the Passion -- The Seven Penitential Psalms -- Litany -- Office of the Dead -- Orations -- The Fifteen Joys of the Virgin -- The Seven Verses of St. Bernard -- Hail Holy Queen. NOTE: Text mainly in Latin and partly in Old French (Calendar, rubricated introductions to the Hours and sections, hours of the Passion, Suffrages). COLLATION: i + ii (paper) + iii + iv + 24⁸ (1-191, 1 is inserted and pasted to 8 with a stub,) + 1⁸⁽⁻⁷ʹ⁸⁾ (192-197, the last two leaves have been cut off). Horizontal catchwords on the verso of the last folio of every quire. LAYOUT: 1 column (full page), frame ruled in lead (86 x 51 mm.). Leroy 02D1, written in 15 lines below top line. The Calendar pages are ruled differently from the text, to accommodate numbers and letters (94 x 58 mm.). Leroy 43C1, written in 16 lines below top line. SCRIPT: French Gothic "textura", by the hand of Paulinus the Sorcy, who claims the paternity of the book on the colophon note on f.15r. The first leaf of the Calendar, f.1r e v, is by a different hand, a little closer to a 'batarde' script. This leaf is inserted as a "cancellans" and attached to the eighth leaf of the quire with a visible stub, so probably is from another source. DECORATION: Calendar pages present the abbreviation KL in gold leaf. The dominical letter A alternates in gold and blue. Ornate pages with figurative borders, human and grotesque figures, dragons, animals: 17r, 27r, 39r, 44v, 48v, 52v, 57r, 64r, 69r, 105r, 115v, 130v, 174v. Secondary gold initials, 4-, 2-line. Tertiary initials (litterae florissae), alternating gold and blue. BINDING: early XX century. Dark brown leather over pasteboards. Full gilt with internal tools. Full gilt spine, with corner and center tools. Bound by J. Bold & Sons, Bristol, England. Gilt edges with diapered pattern. PROVENANCE: the scribe gives his name: Paulinus de Sorcy, in the Colophon: "Paulinus de Sorcy Scriptoris hunc libru[m] scripsit et i[n] o[mn]ibus co[m]plevit. Misereat s[u]i d[eu]s". On the inside of the front board is pasted a printed armorial bookplate. It represents the crest of the Beard family. Underneath the name "Joseph Beard, Alderley". Burke locates this family in Sussex. PLACE OF CREATION: Southern France
Donor The Rockwell Fund, in memory of James Rockwell
