A la louenge de Dieu et de la tressaincte et glorieuse vierge Marie et a l’edification de tous bons catholiques ont esté commencées ces presentes heures a lusaige de Romme tout au long sans riens requerir. Paris: Gillet Hardouyn for Germain Hardouyn, [c. 1509]. 

A handsome Horae printed on vellum by Gillet and Germain Hardouyn, richly illuminated by a contemporary hand, bound in morocco for Philippe de Béthune (1561-1649). In his role as French amabassador. the seigneur de Béthune formed a notable library which included 2500 manuscripts. The library passed to his son Hippolyte who in turn left the collection to Louis XIV in 1658. Almost all the volumes were bound with Philippe de Béthune’s arms. Van Praet 176 cites a copy of Guillaume Godard’s 1516 Heures which was also bound for him. For the present printing, see Van Praet 172. Cf. Brunet V, 1633, no. 2
