In this seminal study, the late Antoine de Schryver argues that the documents refer to the prayer book of Charles the Bold now in the J. Paul Getty Museum (Ms. 37)—one of Charles’s most splendid commissions from the greatest era of Netherlandish Burgundian book painting.De Schryver’s in-depth research opens a window onto the careers of Van Lathem family members, who served three rulers of the Burgundian Netherlands over forty years, and Nicolas Spierinc, the most inventive and brilliant scribe of Charles’s court.

This volume reproduces all of the book’s miniatures and some of its elegant calligraphic pages.
