Engravings by Simon Vostre or Antoine Vérard. They were used from May 22, 1496 by Simon Vostre and around 1498 by Vérard. The design is by the Master of the Apocalypse of the Sainte-Chapelle after I. Nettekoven (H. Tenschert, Horae B.M.V. 158 Stundenbuchdruck der Sammlung Bibermühle, 2003, pp. 121-124) also named Master of the Very Small Hours of Anne of Brittany (Jean d'Ypres? ) by N. Reynaud (France 1500, cat. expo. Grand Palais 6 Oct. 2010-10 Jan. 2011, cat. 113-123). This good-quality illuminator can be placed in the entourage of Simon Marmion. We recognize his pastel colors with mauve and pink, as well as the borders. In the case of the Annunciation to the Shepherds, he demonstrates his inventiveness by not following the engraving (Fr. Elsig, "La dynastie Marmion et Amiens: quelques observations", Peindre à Amiens et Beauvais aux XVe et XVIe siècles, Milan, 2011, pp. 75-82).

Ines Nettekoven (Der Meister des Apokalipsenrose der Sainte-Chapelle und die Pariser Buchkunst um 1500, Turnhout, 2004, Abb. 158-176) names the artist after the stained glass windows in the Rose de la sainte Chapelle, and attributes numerous engravings to him, including the series for Simon Vostre. Vostre. N. Reynaud (Les manuscrits à peintures en France 1440-1520, Cat. Expo. BNF Oct. 1993 - Jan. 1994, pp. 265-270) prefers the name Maître des Très Petites Heures d'Anne de Bretagne from the BNF manuscript (Paris, NAL 3120).

Antique borders, Apocalypse (d1v to e7), Triumphs of Caesar (a'3v-e'1). These last two series come from the in 8° series by Jean Pichore. Most of the large engravings are from the edition by Jean Pichore et Rémy de Laistre in 4° dated April 5, 1504 (Tenschert vol. 2, no. 92), with the exception of David and Uriah (l.8) and Job visited by his friends (h.8), St. Anne Trinitaire (e'4v), which can be found in the Hours in 8° of September 24, 1504 (C. Zöhl, Jean Pichore : Buchmaller, Graphiker und Verleger in Paris um 1500, Turnhout, 2004, Abb. 99-130, p. 162-176). Vostre used them around 1505-1508 (Zöhl, p. 22-25).
