A VOLUME OF EXQUISITE BEAUTY, CONTAINING AN AUTOGRAPH INSCRIPTION BY HENRY VIII. The colouring and illumination are superbly fine, of a kind which can hardly be realised by those who are accustomed to admire the inartistic and glaring splendours of the prayerbooks produced by the Hardouins. The volume was, no doubt, the finest procurable example of a Book of Hours for the English Church which had been produced in Paris; and we are led to suspect, from the excision of some name or badge on the title, that its first owner was Margaret Pole, Countess of Salisbury. The King's inscription may have accompanied the bestowal of that title upon Reginald Pole's mother, and is found here under the picture of the Annunciation, in the following terms: “I pray yow pray for me your lowyng cousin Henry R”, in his well-known bold calligraphy.
The book consists of 120 leaves, with signatures a-p in eights, thirty lines to the page. Every page has a border filled with decorative and pictorial designs, among which there are two distinct sets of illustrations of the Dance of Death. Besides these there are many small designs in the text which we have not taken the trouble to count; eight paintings of medium size, and thirteen grand miniatures, of which each occupies a full page.—The list of contents (which occupies p. 4 and the obverse of p. 5), is in English, as well as many of the prayers in the text.--The size of the larger miniatures is 202 x 123 mm. The edition was unknown to Brunet and Didot.

Divorced in 1533, Henry VIII's first Queen died in 1536 at Kimbolton Castle. " This book was good Queene Kat’in boke and she gave yt to (Ma)rge(ret) Coke hir woman, and sbe gave it Betryce Ogle hyr dowght' and she gave yt to Rich(ard)e Ogle hyr husband & I the said Richer wyll that in my dethe she shall have the sayd boke ageyn and non other to have yt.” This was written on the final flyleaf, and may be assigned to 1536-38. Close to it appears the obliterated signature of Mary Brown of about the same period ; and on the opposite page is a note by a woman, 6 Yours to har powre yf she coulde pleasure yow Andreas Man.” It would seem as though Mrs. Ogle were making a present of the book to this Andreas Mann. Next it passed through the hands of someone whose signature is obliterated to "the Reght Honorable and the most Reverend Father in God the Lord Archebushop of Yorckes grace hys synguler good lord and Master.” This was before 1544. The Archbishop (Edward Lee), who died in that year, may have bestowed it on Fairfax the dispossessed Prior of Kyme, and next possessor, who ultimately gave it to Sir Robert Dymock. This transaction is recorded in a note by Dymock—“ Sum Roberti Dymock ex dono Rodolphi farefax
quondam Prioris monasterii de Kyme.” Kyme was a priory in Lincolnshire.
