Sacrement This small book is testimony of the fashion for finely calligraphed manuscript prayer books in the 17th century among the wealthy elite in France (on this, see R. Portalis, Nicolas Jarry et la calligraphie au 17e siècle (Paris, 1896)). Although not written in the impeccable hand of Nicolas Jarry (fl. c. 1640-1670), it is nevertheless an interesting example of the ongoing production of manuscript devotional books which developed from the medieval tradition. A web of clues, both textual and iconographical, indicate that this manuscript could have been made for Anne of Austria (1601-1666), who married Louis XIII and thus became queen of France in 1612. Indeed, her monogram, combining two As, one upright and one upside down, appears in two decorated initials (ff. 11, 21). Furthermore an unusual Prière pour le Roy in French (f. 87v) implores God to place Louis XIII under his protection, providing 1643, date of the king's death, as a terminus ante quem. Reinforcing this link with the French king, the penitent King David at the beginning of the Penitential Psalms (f. 17v), with his dark hair and beard, bears a resemblance to the monarch. Louis XIII would not have been the first monarch to be shown as King David. Around 1540-1, Henry VIII had himself depicted as King David in his psalter (BL Royal 2 A. xvi, see for instance f. 63v) and in 1565, the Earl of Arundel, aspiring to the throne, also identified with the Biblical king in his psalter (BL, Royal 2 B. ix, f. 2; see Royal Manuscripts: the Genius of Illumination (London, 2011), no. 148). Francis Ist and a number of other French monarchs all hold David's harp in miniatures which were added to the so-called Hours of Marie de Médicis (Paris, BnF, n.a.l. 82). Several initials enclose fleur-de-lys, which, considered on its own would not be significant, but. N° de ref. de la librería 47655
