This thirteenth-century Flemish Book of Hours with Psalter—written in Latin—contains a beautiful image depicting the Holy Family, within an historiated initial. 

The illuminated manuscript was donated to the Library in 1983 by the eminent surgeon Sir John Charles Nicholson (1904–1986), who matriculated at New College in 1923.
