contents: Binding of brown calf over wooden boards, blind-tooled, with two gilded silver clasps. The binding is tooled with a panel stamp, a Dutch invention that had been applied since around 1350 and was to be used until 1560/1570. Panel stamps were rectangular bronze plaques with an image in relief. They were impressed on the leather with a press. This binding has typical characteristics of the Northern Netherlands: one panel in the centre, surrounded by lines and ensembles of small tools. The binding is dated, which is extremely rare for this time.
