Link to Fabulous 15th - 16th Century Book on Medieval Prayers

The illustrations in this text are not original, but a Victorian/Edwardian take on Durer's pictures for the late 15th/16th edition.  This is set in a modern type, but with the period spellings. Here's the page on "How we ought to saye our houres and prayers."

The booke of thenseygnementes and techynge that the Knyght of the Towre
made to his doughters (1902)

I definitely will be spending some time wading through this interesting resource!
