Pafraet's second issue.

Wanting the blank leaf a1.

Binding: Contemporary stamped calf over wooden boards; two clasps and catches lost; rebacked. On both covers intersecting triple fillets form triple concentric frames. Within the second frame are a large rosette stamp, a shield stamp bearing the arms of Cologne (three crowns), a lozenge-shaped fleur-de-lis stamp, and a lozenge-shaped lion rampant stamp. The inner rectangle is divided by further triple fillets into lozenge-shaped and triangular compartments containing the fleur-de-lis stamp, and the coat of arms stamp on both covers, with, on the lower cover only, a small flower-petal stamp, and, on the upper cover only, a small rosette stamp.

Size: 304 × 205 × 103 mm.

Size of leaf: 288 × 196 mm.

Early marginal annotations, including corrections to the text, and ‘nota' marks, also underlining in the text in black ink; in the last lives notes in a seventeenth-century hand remarking on the peoples visited by the saints in question. Foliation is supplied in black ink: 1-417, with foliation numbers added, apparently in the same hand, to the table of contents, and as that which has added a note in German in an eighteenth-century(?) hand on F5r.

On a2r a seven-line initial ‘U' is supplied in pale blue decorated with acanthus scrolling in white on a black ground decorated with gold pen-work, all within a border of light green, dark green, and yellow, and with a foliate extension into the margins in red, green, blue, pink, pale blue, white, and gold; on a2v a six–line initial ‘A' is supplied in white edged with pink, and with red pen-work decoration within the body of the letter; other two- to four-line initials, some with extensions into the margins, paragraph marks, capital strokes, and underlining are supplied in red.

Provenance: Francis Douce (1757-1834); armorial book-plate. Bequeathed in 1834.

SHELFMARK: Douce 245.
