Scope and content

Item is a book containing a collection of private devotions and prayers printed in London by Richard Yardley and Peter Short for Richard Day. Popularly known as Queen Elizabeth's Prayer Book, the book may originally have been written for her private use before being published for a wider audience. The book is heavily illustrated with historiated woodcut borders, some based on works by Albrecht Durer and Hans Holbein. The illustrations are a veritable catalogue of Christian iconography, depicting subjects including the life of Christ, the five senses, sin, virtue, the Book of Revelation, and memento mori such as the Dance of Death.
