The Courtanvaux-Elmhirst Hours

The provenance of this manuscript is described in a blog post here. This page provides a list of the miniatures in the order in which they were (mis)bound, with images whenever I have been able to find them.

[There is no record of there having been a calendar in the parent volume, and the John miniature was missing by 1954]

Warm thanks to François Avril for bringing the Peter Kiefer and Antiquäriat Bengt leaves to my attention. He also tells me that Antiquitäten Bendt had the St Barbara leaf in 2014, and the Visitation (identified as the Holy Virgin and St. Anna) was offered by Bubb Kuyper in 2010, but I cannot locate images online for either.
