24d Ruling Ruling by stylus: 30 horizontal and 1+1 vertical lines (e.g. fol. 127b). Fol. 1: Yaakov duplicated some of the lines of the ruling in plummet to guide his script. It is the same hue of plummet as he used for underdrawing the contours of the display script.

35 Binding

Green leather on wooden boards (350 x241 mm); gold-tooled with a central roundel on the front and a shield on the back cover within an undulating lozenge in a large rectangle, decorated with floral motifs at the centre of each side and at the corners. The front roundel is inscribed קבלה, above is the letter צ and below is a V (first signature of the Fugger library). The spine, blind-tooled with hatching, has four hidden cords and head and tail bands. On the edges of the front cover are vestiges of four groups of three plaited leather bands; two on the side edge and one each on the upper and lower edges, with corresponding holes for four nails on the edges of the back cover (for preserved bands see Cod.hebr. 301). Each group of three bands terminated in a ring intended to hook over the nails on the opposite cover. The leaves are gilt-edged.

 

This binding was executed for Fugger by the ‘Fugger Binder’ in Venice(Hobson 1999:119-129). Similar bindings in BSB: e.g. Cod.hebr. 12, 15, 23, 62.

 

Watermarks on flyleaves: A star above an anchor within a circle at the centre of the folio (65 mm; front and back cover flyleaves): similar to Harlfinger 1974-80, Ancre 24-31 (Venice, 1556).

36 Decoration Program

The decoration is by Yaakov ben Yosef and Yishai ben Yehiel:

Decorative titles written in display letters by Yaakov ben Yosef (fol. 1; for similar titles, captions and initial words see BSB, Cod.hebr. 15, fol. 245; Cod.hebr. 17, fol. 169; Cod.hebr. 22, fols. 1, 70, 81; Cod.hebr. 24, fols. 165, 213; Cod.hebr. 32, fol. 1; Cod.hebr. 40, fols. 160, 161, 219, 219v; Cod.hebr. 48, fol. 1; Cod.hebr. 52, fol. 1; Cod.hebr. 62, fols. 1, 183) and by Yishai ben Yehiel (fol. 174).
