On both covers further triple fillets form the inner rectangle, which is divided by sets of triple fillets into triangular and lozenge-shaped compartments, and decorated with a lozenge-shaped eagle(?) stamp and a small rectangular floral stamp. Author and title in black ink at the head of the spine; at the tail of the spine are remains of a paper manuscript label with a shelfmark in red, now covered by the Bodleian's shelf label.
