35 Binding

Dark green leather turned brown on wooden boards (360 x237 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 משלי/ פירושים; below are the letters LLL. 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 groups 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 which was 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' inVenice(Hobson 1999:119-129). Similar bindings in BSB: e.g. Cod.hebr. 30, 34, 41, 53 and Cod.gr. 12.

 

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