  • A nearly complete fifteenth-century Book of Hours from the Convent of Santi Giovanni e Paolo in Venice. In addition to the Hours of the Virgin, Penitential Psalms, and Office of the Dead, the manuscript contains unusual Marian litanies
  • This manuscript has two sections, the second having been added to the first within a generation of the book's manufacture. The first section of the manuscript (fols. 1-270) contains a standard Italian Dominican Book of Hours with a kalendar, Hours of the Blessed Virgin Mary, Office of the Dead, Penitential psalms, and Short Hours of the Cross. Exceptionally, unusual, however, are the contents of section two, which opens with a rare Office of the Glorious Virgin, followed by two Marian litanies. Such litanies multiplied in the late fourteenth and fifteenth centuries, and these follow the standard pattern of calling on the Virgin by her attributes, as a mother, brides, spouse, intercessor, etc. The Italian prayers at the end of the volume perfectly express vernacular piety in Venice around 1500
  • Collation: ii + I6 (wants 1,2,5) + II8 (wants the original final folio. 7 originally blank with an added prayer; 88 a modern vellum replacement, blank) + III8 (wants 1) + IV8 - XXXV8 + XXXVI4 (one leaf missing between XXXV and XXXVI) + XXXVII10 (beginning of added section) - XLIII10. Only five folios appear to be missing
  • 10 lines (first part), 16 lines (kalendar), 11 lines (second part). On parchment
  • Written in diminutive, elegant Gothic bookhand, with occasional cadels on the penwork (one enclosing a smiling human face on fol. 82v). Catchwords throughout, some decorative. Written on parchment
  • Decoration: Fols. 122r, 224r, 260v have three large painted initials in pink on gold backgrounds with elaborate marginal extensions in blue, red, green, and pink, highlighted by gold bezants, and having infilled interiors (one with a gold cross, 260v); fols. 35v, 63r, 72r, 79r, 85v, 92v, 108r, 140v, 198v all have large multi-line initials in red or blue with elaborate contrasting penwork ; dozens of two-line initials in red or blue with elaborate contrasting penwork trailing in the margins ; hundreds of one-line initials alternating red and blue with contrasting penwork
  • Stitch holes on folio 140 suggest that a devotional relic was once sewn into this page
