St. Jerome's Books

Detail from Jan van Eyck (1390-1441), Saint Jerome in his Study (Detroit Institute of Arts, accession number 25.4):

Detail from Niccolò Colantonio (ca. 1420-1460), Saint Jerome in his Study (Museo di Capodimonte, Naples, inventory number Q 20):

Hat tip: Eric Thomson, who writes, "Pleasingly stacked all higgelty-piggelty. Jerome should be declared patron saint of the chaotic book collector."
