Portland State University Library’s printed Book of Hours demonstrates how, by the early sixteenth century, a book of hours’ use was no longer synonymous with where it was made or where it was intended to be used. While this Book of Hours is designated “Use of Rome” by scholars and by its colophon, it was printed in Paris and was probably intended for use in the Catalonia region of northern Spain.
