|Binding:||Germany, 16th-century pigskin (varnished) over wooden boards. The front cover is decorated with a fillet to form five concentric rectangles. The inner rectangle, which is divided by diagonal fillets into four triangles each containing a lozenge-shaped stamp of a double-headed eagle, has the names of the contents of the book added in ink (“Ad romanos”, “Corinthios”, etc); the second rectangle is decorated with a repeated rectangular foliate stamp; the third rectangle is decorated with a lozenge-shaped stamp of a lion and a small six-petalled rosette; the fourth rectangle is decorated with a repeated “maria” scroll; the fifth rectangle is undecorated. The rear cover is divided by a fillet into six concentric rectangles and is similarly decorated, using the same stamps as on the front cover, without the “maria” scroll but with the addition of a lozenge-shaped fleur-de-lys stamp and a roll of a bar entwined with foliage. The spine is undecorated but with a red leather title label added at a later date. Two brass and leather clasps with catch plates on the front board. Endpapers have watermark of a tête de boeuf surmounted by a crown, which is in turn surmounted by a five-petalled flower. Leather index tabs. Size: 434 x 297 mm.|
