Named for its 17th- to early 20th-century owners, the Salvin Hours is one of the largest and most richly decorated English books of hours. Its decoration, created by two artists, resembles contemporary wall paintings in the Oxford area, suggesting that it was made in a workshop there. Its original owner probably was a high-status person living in Lincoln because it also resembles 13th-century books of hours associated with that city. It lacks a calendar, which would have helped to locate its original place of use because it would have listed saints' feasts special to a particular place. The Hours of the Virgin was borrowed from the prayerbook used by monks to become the core of the Book of Hours. Prayers from the office of compline (bedtime) are written on this page. No pictures decorate this page, only very elaborate calligraphic marks in red and blue to fill out short lines and other types of decoration, such as the decorated bar at the left margin, which distinguish a prayer from surrounding text. The bar highlights the beginning of one of the fourteen lesser canticles, prayers which are similar to psalms.
