Beauty of the human hand, part 2(a)/3

This is a mid-sixteenth century binding in leather with decorative  tooled scroll work on a central oblong panel with a border of small heads and vases. The leather (probably sheep) is glued to wooden boards, and the spine has heavily raised bands.


  1. Can we see more of the pages from inside the book ?

  2. Yes, but they are similar to the open book in section 2b/3. Glad you liked the binding, it's wonderful, isn't it? tpm.
