Sewn on four bands and bound in uncoloured parchment over pasteboards, the covers each tooled in gilt with an outer framing filet, and an inner rectangle with a thistle-head motif at each corner; the spine lettered in gilt 'BIBLIA | SACRA | CARMIN'; a rust-stain an hole near the centre of the final original leaf is perhaps suggestive of the the position of a pin of a former strap and pin fastening
