The Très Riches Heures du Duc de Berry or Très Riches Heures, (English: The Very Rich Hours of the Duke of Berry), is the most famous and possibly the best surviving example of French Gothic manuscript illumination, showing the late International Gothic phase of the style.

It was created between c. 1412 and 1416 for the extravagant royal bibliophile and patron John, Duke of Berry, by the Limbourg brothers.

We have selected an appropriate quotation from the works of members of the Scottish Enlightenment to go with the following illustrations from the Très Riches Heures.

Arranged in months (with zodiacal signs above each month and a zodiacal figure at the end of the book as an extra image) and depicting scenes that celebrate the Duc De Berry's wealth, estates, habits and 'good taste', whilst simultaneously depicting scenes appropriate to the time of year, this is a magnificent collection of extraordinarily beautiful art.
