MS. Lat. liturg. f. 2
Summary Catalogue no.: 29741
Miniatures (partly defaced), borders (some unfinished) and initials.
Scott (1996 no. 22) distinguishes six artists of the miniatures, of whom hands C, D and F were working in France or Flanders in the late fourteenth century, hands A and B in England, probably London, somewhat later. Hand A, to whom she attributes fols. 2v, 4v, 10, 104v, 143v, 144v, and 146v, has been identified elsewhere (e.g. (Pächt and Alexander iii. 795) as Herman Scheerre, although Scott does not accept this identification. Hand C (fols. 6v, 11v, 12v), is identified as the Master of the Beaufort Saints. Hand E (fol. 19v, probably an inserted miniature) is also found in the Bedford Hours and Psalter (British Library MS Addit. 42131).
Cf. Pächt and Alexander i. 308, pl. XXIV; iii. 795, pl. LXXVII.
