Historical Note: Often members of nobility are seen with small books in their hands or hanging from a girdle in paintings of the Renaissance. Usually these were prayer books or "Books of Hours" and many still exist in museums and private collections. These books were often very ornate, covered with leather or fabric and embellished with embroidery and adorned with gold, silver, pearls and precious gems.
