35 Binding

Dark green leather on wooden boards (356 x243 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 רפואה, and below it are the letters MMM. 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 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 in the opposite cover. The leaves are gilt-edged.

 

This binding was made for Fugger by the 'Fugger Binder' inVenice(Hobson 1999:119-129). Similar bindings in BSB: e.g. Cod.hebr. 29, 32.

 

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

36 Decoration Program

Ribbon-like letters of the title by Meir decorated with scrolls, grotesques and human heads (fol. 1).
