A book of offices (special prayers for each day) and other prayers, this book was illuminated by the painter Hermann Scheere. Scheere may have been German, but his style suggests that his artistic background was Flemish. Certain features of its decoration reveal his continental background and suggest that he decorated this book soon after arriving in England. It presents several unique or early examples of subject matter and text. Provided with a calendar, it includes prayers for feast days and ones special to certain saints. This page presents prayers, hymns and readings for Easter. Its miniature shows St John the Evangelist, recognisable by his red robes, blonde hair and chalice. He made an appropriate Easter subject probably because texts on the Resurrection were read from his gospel on Easter and one of the important Easter songs was composed from Psalm 114 (115) which mentions the cup of salvation, which also was an attribute or identifying object of St John. The miniature has an important place, and probably because of this, Herman Scheerre signed it. His signature is at the end of the golden inscription in the background: 'Hermannus Scheerre me fecit' ('Hermann Scheerre made me.') The miniature exemplifies his extremely fine painting technique and beautiful colour sense.
