Anne Boleyn's Book of Hours. One of the few surviving artifacts belonging to Anne Boleyn, this Book of Hours gives us a rare glimpse into the courtship of Anne and Henry. The King often used the time before the consecration to transact business but this manuscript shows him using a book of prayers to send a flirtatious message to Anne Boleyn instead.
