[Book of Hours Pentecostal Illumination from the 15th Century, Bruges (Belgium)]

Description: A leaf from a Book of Hours, in Latin, with a full-page illumination of Pentecost (Bruges, ca. 1460). The illustration is enclosed by a wide and ornate bar frame in pink and blue with gold tracery, the frame outlined in burnished gold with floral cornerpieces in colors and gold, the whole within a full floral border filled with blue, pink, and red flowers, with blue and gold acanthus leaves and green buds and leaves as well as many tiny burnished gold dots.

Coal-Mine Accidents in the United States and Foreign Countries

Description: From Introduction: "The lack of comparable and accurate statistics of coal-mine accidents in the united States as a whole led the Bureau of Mines in 1911 to undertake the collection of such data. The mining departments of the leading foreign coal-producing countries have long taken cognizance of the importance of statistics. The bureau feels that in presenting the tables embodied in this report it is offering the and comparable statistics of coal-min accidents for the country as a whole that have ever been published."
