Overview

Hours and Psalter of Elizabeth de Bohun: Illuminated Bookmarks by Museum of the Bible Books


This bookmark features artwork from the Hours and Psalter of Elizabeth de Bohun, Countess of Northamton, great-grandmother to King Henry V of England. Created around 1340-45, this richly illuminated manuscript combines two types of books: a Book of Hours and a Psalter. The former contained prayers and biblical readings, while the latter had the Psalms, often with a calendar. This volume was previously owned by John Jacob Astor III and William Waldorf Astor, who loaned the item to the 1883 exhibition in New York that raised funds for the base of the Statue of Liberty.
