I.B. Book of prayers

A booke of certeine devoute and godlie Praires
Calligraphic manuscript, 1564

This little book, made the year that Shakespeare was born, may have been used by a gentleman at Elizabeth's court for private prayer. It contains prayers for the queen and for the court. The identity of I (or J) B is still a mystery.
