One of the many treasures of the Grey Collection at Auckland City Libraries is the Rossdhu book of hours, an illuminated prayer book made in Bruges, Belgium, around 1475. Its first owner was Elizabeth Dunbar, Countess of Moray, who lived at Rossdhu in Scotland. George Grey purchased the volume from London booksellers Thomas and William Boone in 1863 and donated it to the Auckland Library in 1887. Zoom in to examine the 31st page of this 109-page volume.
