Bound in four volumes. In vol. 4 d8 is bound after d1.
Binding: Contemporary German (Augsburg, Kyriß workshop no. 80) blind-tooled calf over wooden boards; all four volumes rebacked. One metal clasp and one lost on vol. 1, one only on vol. 2, one lost on vol. 3, and two lost on vol. 4; vols 1-3 have inscribed catches. On both covers of all four volumes triple fillets form concentric intersecting frames. Within the second frame is a repeated rosette stamp (Kyriß pl. 163, no. 4). On the upper cover of vols 1 and 4, the inner rectangle is divided by further triple fillets into compartments, the inner one of which is decorated with a small lozenge-shaped stamp (Kyriß pl. 163, no. 9) and a flower-petal stamp (Kyriß pl. 163, no. 10). On the lower cover of vols 1 and 4 and on both covers of vol. 3, the inner rectangle is decorated with merrythoughts (Kyriß pl. 163, nos 2 and 3) and two small floral stamps (Kyriß pl. 163, nos 5 and 6). On both covers of vol. 2, the inner rectangle is decorated with merrythoughts and the small flower-petal stamps. Each volume has the remains of a paper manuscript label at the head of the spine, and below this a number (G130–133) on a label. Next to the spine on both covers of all volumes a strip of leather with a floral roll covers or replaces the repeated rosette stamps. Sheppard notes that the bindings are similar to that on Inc. d. G26.1482.1 (Nicolaus de Ausmo, Supplementum Summae Pisanellae. Reutlingen: [Michel Greyff], 5 Jan. 1482 (N‑022).
