Description: Miniature prefacing the prayers to be said at Mass of a crowned woman (probably the first owner of the manuscript) in a pink robe with furred lining, kneeling at a prie dieu underneath a canopy, while a priest raises the host. The bas-de-page scene shows Jerome writing, inspired by the dove of the Holy Spirit; on his book is scribbled 'Douz sire (al) comencement,' the beginning of the text above. In the right margin a drawing of two hands holding a host labelled 'IHS'. 
Origin: England, S. E.? (London?)
