KIRKUS REVIEW

Noted art historian Erwin Panovsky writes of The Hours as ""an acquisition which, even by the standards of the Morgan Library, must be considered an historic event."" An illuminated manuscript over five-hundred years old, the work of a Dutch artist, it was split into two volumes hundreds of years ago. One became a part of the Guennol Collection, the other was discovered three years ago. Now all 157 miniatures appear in a faultless little book, printed in Holland for faithful reproduction.
