Hours of Catherine of Cleves at the Morgan Library

The Morgan Library has recently put up a digitized facsimile of the Hours of Catherine of Cleves. The facsimile’s web pages allow the viewer to examine the minute details of  the work’s “unusually rich series of devotions illustrated with especially elaborate suites of miniatures.”

This is recommended viewing/reading for those interested in illuminated manuscripts.
