The Tickhill Psalter is a 14th-century illuminated manuscript. It is beautifully illuminated with scenes from the life of King David. Created in the early 14th century, the manuscript was originally part of the library of the Worksop Priory in north Nottinghamshire. It is now kept in the New York Public Library. The name most likely derives from the fact that it was produced by prior John de Tickhill, who as his name would suggest came from the nearby South Yorkshire village of Tickhill.
