About this collection

Mary of Guelders’ prayer book (around 1415) takes up a key position in the Dutch book production industry of the early 15th century. It was copied in a monastery close to Arnhem and richly decorated by illuminators who can be traced back to locations between Nijmegen and Utrecht. The book is 600 pages long and has a complex structure.
