 A festive image from a Book of Hours, use of Rome, printed in Paris by Pierre Le Rouge for Vincent Commin on 9 May 1491 (ISTC ih00369170). 

This is a rare edition, of which only two copies are known:

Cambridge University Library, Inc.5.D.1.19[2530] (Oates 3011), from which the image, and Paris, Bibliothèque nationale de France, MSS. Rotschild VI.3.6 (BN cat. des incun., H-219), both on vellum and with hand coloured woodcuts.

A very Happy Holiday to you all !
