This site presents a reconstruction and analysis of a late fifteenth-century Book of Hours dismembered and scattered by Otto F. Ege in the mid-twentieth century, a manuscript whose leaves are known as FOL 48 for their use as no. 48 in Ege's "Fifty Original Leaves" portfolios. The reconstruction was undertaken by students in the Simmons School of Library and Information Science graduate course, "The Medieval Manuscript from Charlemagne to Gutenberg" (LIS 464), under the direction of Lisa Fagin Davis.
