Plate XXXIV,A.
JUGULUM CAUSAE seu … ratioper quam
doctrinae Romanensium complexus . . et unt
Papa . . evertuntur.
Juxta exemplar Londinense 1671.
Cassel, theol. dogm. pol. 8vo 406.

Also contains a letter addressed to the Pfalzgraf. The book was formerly in Heidelberg under the shelf-mark Lit. E 8,0 31 & 14, so that it must have come there a, a present from the unknown author.
Binding: Pasteboard covered with scarlet red morocco, 166, 106 , 30 mm , smooth gilt edges, red silk strings. headband worked in blue and red.
Decoration: Gold tooling with very fine tools showing a great similarity with those of the Bible already described, and probably from the same bindery. From the same workshop proceeded the volume: Cassel, hist. eccles. papal. fol. 6 (History of the Cardinals by G. H. London 1670), the design of which is particularly beautiful but unfortunately could not be photographed
because the cover, of white polished pig vellum, has been marbled in a really awful manner with large, glaring green , pink, carmine, yellow, violet and brown blots. Several identical stamps, including some of identical design and different size, occur. The end-paper of both has the same watermark, and the variegated volume is shown to be a presentation copy by the manuscript entry: “A Johanne Thorowgood milite de I Kensington juxta Londinum nos I sumus humillime oblati”; which is a proof that the three volumes here described are of English origin.

Plate XXXIV b.
SPANHEIM, discours sur la croix de notre seigneur.
a Geneve 1655.
Cassel, theol. past. hom. 8,0 18. (1-1: Lit. Q 8″ 6.)

The work is dedicated to the Pfalzgraf, and the entry “pour son altesse Madame la princesse Elisabeth” permits us to guess that this copy is a presentation one from the author.
Binding: Millboard covered with dark scarlet red morocco, 195, 120, 20 mm. Smooth gilt edges.
Decoration: Very original, differing from all those previously described, although there is a certain similarity in the tools employed. The small heraldic lilies, too, are probably not often met with elsewhere. The binding is of Genevese origin, the manifold fly-leaves having the same watermark as the work itself. But only one half of the watermark is found on each of the 6 fly-leaves which the volume now possesses.

 

Plate XXXIV,c.

COMENII, Janua linguarurn et rerum.
Schaffhausen 1656.
Cassel, philolog. 190 (H: lit. o in octavo 22).

Binding : Millboard covered with bright red morocco, 165, 100, 20 mm.
Decoration: Filigree ornament of a quite different character from those shown above to be of Heidelberg origin.

 

Plate XXXIV,D.
J. BOSSEE, Nieuwe reductie der Gelden . vor
alle militaire officieren. ‘s Gravenhag 1746.
Cassel, are militaris 8v. I.

Binding: Millboard covered with scarlet red morocco, 200, 125, 20 mm. Linings of colored and gilt paper; smooth gilt edges.
Wild filigree work of defective execution on too thick and soft leather. The binding must have been produced in numbers on the spot, as at the end of the index in every copy the author has placed his autograph, “om alle abu)sen en het copieren van dit Boek voor to komen’. (the defective workmanship and the circumstance that the ink has not set off or blurred during the process of binding, to which beating then belonged, speak in favor of a Dutch publisher’s binding.
