The frames are decorated with the same flower stamp, a smaller circular flower stamp, and a stamp of a fleur-de-lys within a lozenge; spine undecorated, with a paper title label (now illegible) added at a later date. Pastedowns are parchment fragments from a manuscript of St Jerome Adversus Jovinianum (text in two columns enclosed within brown ink rules); pink-stained paper tabs used to distinguish the four separate works.
