Description

While it is impossible to trace the specific journey of the 1507 Kerver Book of Hours, it is consistent with the historical record to conclude that it was produced for an international market, and quite plausibly, specifically for the Catalonian Spanish market. This essay summarizes the development of the book trade between France and Spain by 1600 and the importance of books of hours to that market.
