Elizabeth de Bohun Magnet
The colorful illustrations on this magnet are from a manuscript in the Museum Collections: The Hours and Psalter of Elizabeth de Bohun. This artifact contains a pair of beautiful 14th-century manuscripts, now bound together, that belonged to Elizabeth de Bohun, Countess of Northampton.
About the Elizabeth de Bohun Manuscripts
Based on the heraldry present in the manuscripts, Elizabeth de Bohun commissioned the book of hours while married to her first husband, Sir Edmund Mortimer (d. 1331), and the Psalter while married to her second husband, William de Bohun (d. 1360), first Earl of Northampton and Constable of England. Although there are many similarities in style between the two manuscripts, there are some important differences. The large, illuminated initials in the hours mostly contain floral designs, while there are several large, historiated initials in the Psalter. The hours begins with a scene of the annunciation and the Psalter with the tree of Jesse.
