British Library - Add MS 35313

British Library Add MS 35313, known as the London Rothschild Hours, is another Flemish book of hours, this one probably made for a member of the Spanish court in the Netherlands.  The complete calendar consists of only 6 folios, with one month per side.  The decoration scheme is comprehensive, with the sign of the Zodiac at top, the labor of the month at bottom, and architectural roundels the full height of the outer edge representing the saints of the month.  On the side of December, f.7r below, you can see the Nativity, the deaths of St. Thomas Becket and St. Stephen and a cephalophoric saint, among others.  The calendar is interesting due to the large number of unusual saints, roughly 60, who were unmatched and their prevelance in March and April.
