Binding: Original pigskin, blind-tooled with lozenges traced in double fillets over bevelled oak boards. Spine with three raised bands, a label with handwritten title (worn) and a small label with the shelfmark 634; the same number is written on the front cover. Traces of one strap attached to the rear cover and clutching over a pin (lacking) on the front cover.The binding stays and the lining inside the spine are said to come from a 12th-century Antiphonary from Tyrol, with text from the office for Epiphany. One strip of the spine lining would be from an unidentified 14th-century manuscript.
