Bohun Book of Hours Bookmark
This bookmark features artwork from the Hours and Psalter of Elizabeth de Bohun, Countess of Northamton, great-grandmother to King Henry V of England. Created between 1330 and 1340, this richly illuminated manuscript combines two types of books: a book of hours and a Psalter. The former contained prayers and biblical readings, while the latter is the book of Psalms, often with a calendar. This volume was previously owned by John Jacob Astor III and William Waldorf Astor, who loaned the item to the 1883 exhibition in New York to raise funds for the base of the Statue of Liberty. A heart-shaped charm accents the end of the dark blue ribbon tassel on this bookmark, making this a pretty as well as a meaningful gift.
