Anne Boleyn’s love of illuminated manuscripts had begun at the court of Margaret of Austria, who had a vast collection of them, but if it began in the Low Countries it blossomed in France because Queen Claude also loved illumination, as is clear when we examine her Prayer Book and Book of Hours from 1517.

This beautiful binding is among the best preserved and most splendid of its kind. The floral motifs are embroidered with satin stitching in silver and luminous colours. The edges are lavishly decorated, painted in gold and other colours and with gauffering. The front edge shows the symbol of hope, a woman with an anchor. The volume may have belonged to Hedvig Eleonora as there is a printed dedication to her in one of the works bound together.
