Red penwork initials with reserved decoration, red Lombards (blank areas repaired on a few leaves, closed tear in text to one leaf; some light staining and spotting; one passage blacked out). Contemporary Westphalian blindstamped calf over wooden boards, brass clasps and catches (rebacked, boards very worn with restoration, lacking one clasp). Provenance: JHJ (stamp on first leaf) – acquired from Menno Hertzberger and Co, Amsterdam, 18 May 1966.
