Book of hours, use of Rome, printed ca. 1507 in Paris by Guillaume Anabat for Gilles and Germain Hardouyn, followed by a few manuscript pages containing an alternate set of lessons, responsories, and versicles for Matins in the Hours of the Virgin; a prayer to Jesus (also known as the Fifteen Oes) often attributed to Saint Bernard; prayers to Saint Nicholas, Saint Eustace, and Saint Roman; and the Seven Verses of Saint Bernard. The printed book of hours, titled Heures a lusaige de Romme tout au long sans riens requerir, avec les figures de la vie de lhomme, et la destruction de Hierusalem, is extensively illustrated by Jean Pichore and his workshop with a series of full-page metal cuts (two fully illuminated with color and gold) and borders (printed from a combination of woodcuts and metal cuts) on every text page. Illuminated initials and line-fillers appear throughout both the printed and manuscript pages.
