text in the book:
No Tablet
For thy brest
Thy Chr[ist]ian mo
ther gives hir
Dattere What
Jewell Fits hir best A boke not
big but yet ther
in Some hidden
Vertu is So christ
So christ Procur.you
grace with
God And
Give you
[No tablet for your breast. Your Christian mother gives her the jewel that fits her best. A small book, containing special virtue. So Christ procures you grace with God and gives you endless bliss.] - The inscription refers to Elizabeth's mother Anne of Denmark, who apparently gave her daughter a devotional text, instead of jewelry.
