A southern European binding bound in quarter leather with exposed wooden boards. Binders in southern Europe tended to use beech. The large ridges on the spine cover the sewing, mostly likely on split alum-tawed thongs. A vellum title label has been glued to the spine. There are evidence of claps on the front board. The back board has been lost and replaced with a cloth replacement.
