Belles Heures of Jean of France, Duc of Berry, 1405–1408/9 ~ by Herman, Paul, and Jean Limbourg (Franco-Netherlandish, active in France, by 1399–1416) -- Ink, tempera, and gold leaf on vellum, 9 3/8 x 6 5/8 in. The Cloisters Collection,
Lancastrian Rose -- Coram Rege Roll of Henry VII. The roll records court proceedings that were supposed to be carried out before the king in person (coram rege), although that was rarely true. The rolls often include a portrait of the monarch as if to suggest this presence but here the red rose of Lancaster stands in for King Henry VII, 1500
Homilary This richly illuminated fourteenth-century German homilary is particularly interesting for its rare bifolium of drawings bound in at the front of the book. The headgear worn by the nuns in the drawings is characteristic of Cistercensian and Premostratensian nuns in northern Germany as early as circa 1320.
