Summary Catalogue no.: 20181
15th century, Italian (as MS.): wood boards with slight cushion bevel, fore-edge corners rounded as textblock, now bare but perhaps originally full leather; traces of two clasps with green textile straps running to trefoil-shaped catch-plates, and of four bosses on each cover (all lost).
Reback, 18th century, Italian: spine replaced as a quarter-binding of light brown leather, extending across about a quarter of each board to a vertical row of 1+9+1 small nails with a thin edging strip; side-leather and spine decorated with blind quintuple lines forming five panels, acorn stamps on spine (possibly gilt, very worn), in same style as MSS. Canon. Ital. 27 and 96 (see also 222 and 228). 300 × 220–222 × c. 50 mm. (book closed).
