Traces of two pairs of clasps, hinging on the upper cover. Sewn on three cords which have been laced in. The spine shows marks of rope or cords used to tie up the binding as it was drying after the leather had been pasted onto the boards. The endbands have been sewn with a brownish thread over alum-tawed cores, now broken at the joint, and have been tied down into the gatherings. The edges are sprinkled in red and the endleaves consist of white paper paste-downs conjugate with a stub and a free leaf, also conjugate with a sub.
