Horae ad usum Romanum (Rome)
Imprint: [Paris: n. pr., for Geoffroy de Marnef, c.1493]. 8°.
Remarks: The type and woodcut of this fragment, attributed as above in the Pre-1920 Catalogue of the Bodleian Library, are virtually identical with Heures à l'usage de Rome, Paris: Gillet Hardouyn, . The subject of the woodcut, representing the Church, Justice, and Mercy, would also be unusual in a fifteenth-century Book of Hours; in its position one would usually find a woodcut of the Annunciation. Collation unknown.
