Condition: Good

An extremely late 16th century Book of Hours, printed by Jacques Kerver, Paris bookseller and printer, son of the famed printers Thielman Kerver and Yolande Bonhomme. This book of hours reuses woodcuts from the Kerver-Bonhomme Books of Hours.

This Book of Hours is printed in red and black with Gothic font, profusely illustrated throughout with border woodcuts and full-page woodcuts. The calendar opens with 12 near full-page woodcuts, and a 13th woodcut of the Anatomical Man. There are 43 full-page woodcuts, and 26 smaller woodcuts.

Additionally bound is an extremely late 16th century edition of Propositions, dictations and sentences containing the graces, fruits, benefits, uses and praises of the most sacred and worthy sacrament of the altar. There are 16 woodcuts throughout, including a small suite of woodcuts depicting the Stations of the Cross. This is also a Jacques Kerver imprint.

This volume has been bound in a beautiful contemporary calf blind-stamped binding, with several concentric rolls displaying numerous figures, and the initials M.D.W, and the date of 1565 to the front cover, being a curious example of an earlier binding on a slightly later book. The volume has been rebacked, and the clasps are lacking.

This volume has been newly rebacked by the bookbinder Keith Felton, with the original 16th century boards preserved.

USTC records two existing copies of the first work, and one copy of the second work in libraries.

Two books bound into one blind tooled leather volume in 12mo, 230, 140 leaves

This volume is in good shape, with some old wear and chipping to the original binding. There is significant staining to the upper and lower outer corners of the pages, those portions being very soft, and prone to flaking slightly. The June leaf of the calendar is misbound. Leaves XCV to CXX have brittle and worn outer margins, more towards the centre of the margins. Several pages are lacking some portions of outer margins. There is a small wormhole affecting the outer margin for a section of pages. All of this does not obscure text. There is some scattered staining throughout the main text.
