contents: This is a gold-tooled, partly painted bookbinding in brown calf over wooden boards. Both covers are decorated with a sober panel design with the coat of arms of William of Orange in the centre, painted in red and blue. It is not certain that this binding was made in the Netherlands, neither is it certain when it was made. It is certain, however, that it originates from the library of William of Orange.
