SIX BOOKS IN ONE, BACK TO BACK

Saturday, February 01, 2014

This variation of a dos-à-dos binding format allows the resulting volume to be opened in six different ways. Each of the six books in this binding can thus be read separately.





The leather covers are decorated in corner and middle style.





The volume is from the late 16th century and comes from the Rogge Library in Strängnäs.
