  1. I've been to see the small exhibition, which has an illustrated catalog for £3.00. I would guess this could be purchased from the Administrator of Elton Hall after the exhibition closes this Bank Holiday Monday.

    The 48 page catalogue is illustrated by 5 pages from books of hours and prayer books. No illustrations of the bibles are shown, but I would guess could be found on the internet with a search.
