Facsimile of the Psalter named for Queen Mary Tudor (1516-1558), daughter of King Henry VIII, but produced centuries earlier, possibly for Isabella of France (1295-1358), Queen of England and consort of Edward II. The manuscript was produced in England, probably in London or East Anglia c. 1310/20, by a single artist now known as the 'Queen Mary Master.'
