Commencement of reconstruction of a book of hours. In 2018 Rose Faunce linked the two leaves, both in Australian collections. Both leaves are from the Hours of the Virgin - Matins, 2nd nocturn.
Both leaves have similar seller's stock numbering, associated with Folio Fine Art, London. Both leaves have binding hole slits of the same size and in the same location (upper and lower inner edge of the gutter).
