Binding: The damaged upper and lower covers of contemporary
German blind-tooled leather (Augsburg, Kyri workshop no. 81)
have been relaid on nineteenth-century blind-tooled calf for the
Bodleian Library; rebacked. On both covers llets form an outer
frame within which is a cresting and oral roll (Kyri pl. 165, no.
4); on the upper cover only further llets form a middle frame
within which is roll of animals, trees, fences (Kyri pl. 165, no. 3);
on both covers further llets form an inner frame; triple llets
form an inner rectangle which is decorated with a lattice-work
roll (Kyri pl. 165, no. 5); for a similar binding see Johannes de
