The Chester Beatty Library shows The Coëvity Hours, a masterpiece of 15th-century manuscript illumination. Produced in Paris c.1443-5, this Book of Hours includes 148 three-quarter page miniatures painted in demi-grisaille (part monochrome), with each of the 364 parchment folios illuminated with decorative borders. The manuscript was acquired by Edith Beatty in 1919, and given as an anniversary gift to her husband.
