Publisher:  Reggio Emilia : Bartholomaeus and Laurentius de Bruschis, Bottonus, June 5, 1482.
Call Number:  PA 6139 .R8 1482

A southern European binding in vellum. The ends of the sewing supports, called slips, can be seen laced through the binding at the hinge. The cloth ties were used to hold the book closed, since vellum tends to warp when the humidity changes.
