Binding: Sixteenth century, Italy (Italo-Greek?). Own endleaves. Unusual sewing through three spine linings, the central one paper. An endband of two joined lines of chain stitching is sewn on a largely exposed leather core. The flush paste boards are held on by the cloth spine linings which extend on either side of them and are glued to them. Covered in brown goatskin with rope interlace crosses and random small tools. Traces of four ribbon ties.

Purchased from B. Rosenthal in 1955 by Thomas E. Marston.
Script: Latin words written in humanistic bookhand; Greek words in a neat Greek minuscule.
