Excerpt from A Catalogue of Manuscripts Comprising a Portion of the Library of Robert Hoe, New York, 1909

The present volume is the sixteenth and last of the catalogues describing the library of the late Robert Jl Hoe, and was finished after his death in London, on September twenty-second.

This portion of the library is one of the richest and most interesting, including over two hundred and fifty manuscripts, ecclesiastical and classical, illustrating the art of the calligrapher, the illuminator, and the miniaturist from about 1200 to the present time. More than half of the number were executed before 1600.

Among the seventy-five "Hor?" of French, Flemish, Dutch, Italian, and English workmanship, dating from about 1365 to 1537, are the famous "Pembroke Hours" executed in England about 1440, presumably for William Herbert, first Earl of Pembroke, containing almost five hundred and fifty exquisitely painted miniatures; also "Hours" made for Anne de Beaujeu, daughter of Louis XI, for Margaret of Anjou, wife of Henry VI of England, for Louis XII and his first wife, Anne de Bretagne, and for Maximilian I, as a gift to his grandson, Charles I of Spain and V of Germany. The superb "Missel de Charles VI," with over five hundred paintings, is also in this collection.

Almost without exception the manuscripts are in immaculate condition, as fresh and pure as when they left the hands of scribe and illuminator.

Acknowledgment is due to Dr. A. V. Williams Jackson and Dr. Abraham Yohannan, of Columbia University, for their kind assistance in the description of the thirty-eight oriental manuscripts.
