65/2370 [Medieval manuscripts]. (Prayerbook). Manuscript in Middle-Dutch on paper, Friesland, ±1540, (2),(238)lvs., red and black ink, littera hybrida, 16 lines to the page, leaves measuring ±14,5x10 cm., rubricated in red and blue ink, two miniatures in black ink depicting the sun and the moon, tables, contemp. blindst. calf w. simple brass clasps and catches.

- Contemporary manuscript annotations throughout; bookblock loose; first three quires and a few following leaves repaired w. sello which has deteriorated and became very sticky, and damaged the original margins; one leaf cut in half; a few leaves waterstained in margins, not affecting text. Binding worn/ dam.; corners showing; spine-ends chipped.

= This lovely prayerbook, containing a specific calendar, belonged to two members of the Van Burmania family, a noble family from Friesland. A contemporay manuscript annotation states that this book belonged to Sitke van Burmania (22 April 1536 - 26 October 1605) and Ansck van Burmania (27 August 1539 - 7 February 1579), two sisters, out of a family of 6 children of Bocke van Burmania and Frouck Poppesdr van Heemstra. The family tree is written down on leaf 12r. The two sisters were nuns from the convent of Bethlehem in Friesland. The convent originated in the twelfth century and flourished until its abolishment in 1580. It was one of the richest convents of Friesland. This is a remarkable document because very few documents that were used in Frisian convents survived after the abolishment in 1580. The manuscript is strengthened at the end with a late 13th century Latin fragment, ornamented w. gold, red, blue and green ink. SEE ILLUSTRATION PLATE LXIX.
