Leuchtendes Mittelalter, Neue Folge III, Vom Heiligen Ludwig zum Sonnenkönig: 34 Werke der Französischen Buchmalerei aus Gotik, Renaissance und Barock, beschrieben von Eberhard König mit Beiträgen von Gabriele Bartz und Heribert Tenschert, Ramsen Antiquariat Heribert Tenschert 2000, S. 322.
Manuscript in Latin and French in brown, red, gold and blue on vellum, in textura.
- Written in Paris in the 2nd quarter of the 15th century, illuminated in Paris and perhaps in Tours c. 1490: by the Master of the Chronique Scandaleuse, with parts added by Jean Bourdichon and the Master of the Vigiles of Charles VII from the circle of Jacques de Besançon.
- A very handsome Book of Hours, written before 1450 in Paris, but with picture spaces left blank until illumination was undertaken in Paris, possibly in Tours as well, toward the end of the 15th century. This work was divided: Two main miniatures and the decoration of calendar and Office of the Dead were contributed by artists from the cirde of Maitre François, the miniatures probably by a dose collaborator of the Master of Jacques de Besançon who celebrates Notre Dame de Paris in a view of that town. Glowing colours and monumental forms in the other pictures betray at least the influence of Jean Bourdichon in Tours who in fact may have supervised the Master of the Chronique Scandaleuse who apparently was responsible for this Book of Hours in his younger years.
