From a Book of Hours, probably printed in Paris for Simon Vostre; as in the facsimile, his Chartres use Hours of 1508? has 29 lines to the page, border decorations of the miracles of the Virgin, with Sibyls (plain background and Latin names) in the corners, and the same mouldings as are in the lower borders of the recto and verso of the facsimile, but unfortunately the captions to the border historiation are in French, not Latin. (See Fairfax Murray Catalogue of Early French Books, no. 259). The Sibyls cuts were used by Pigouchet as early as June 1497, but a comparison of the border historiation with the illustrations in Claudin rule out such an ascription. The ca. 1512 Besancon use Hours produced for Vostre agrees as to subjects, Latin captions, and the border of the recto of the facsimile, but has 30 lines to the page. (See Murray Catalogue, no. 694, and Harvard Catalogue of French 16th-century Books, No. 298).
