XVIII, in heavy wooden boards (the top now loose) covered by leather blind-stamped to form rectangular frames; one of the rolls of foliage with a stag, a unicorn and 2 oval frames, one enclosing a man with tablets (?) and a palm leaf, the other enclosing a man with a crescent on his head ("horned"?), possibly Aaron (?). Large rosette centerpieces and 7 remaining cornerpieces shaped as 2 birds back to back and twisting their heads toward each other; one of the cornerpieces now attached to a top edge instead of its correct position on a bottom edge, as shown by the position of its protruding metal rest. Evidence of 2 fore edge straps, presumably closing to pins on the front cover. - Written in Poland in the sixteenth century for a Franciscan convent. Date and source of acquisition by Henry E.
