It has been written by a very accomplished scribe and has illumination from the middle of the fifteenth century that is of the highest quality and in superb condition.This quality of illumination is not generally found in a Breviary and it must have been an expensive production for a person of the highest rank. The style and quality of the illumination would suggest that the Breviary was produced in Paris. It was certainly not for the Use of Rome and the provenance (see above) would indicate a Bergundian Use.
