Binding: Millboard covered with red morocco. 205, 17o,3o mm.

Plate XXXVII.

CO1VITE DE PAGAN, les fortifications du .

Paris 1645.

Cassel, arch. milit. fol. 16.

Binding: Millboard covered with bright calf. 240, 340, 3o mm. 6 double cords. Edges gilt.
Decoration of thick filigree scroll work, surrounded by a roll border, and principally composed of a pair of right and left tools,
centre and corner pieces.
The composition is so exact that it required careful examination with the compasses to ascertain that the corner pieces &c. had not been done with large blocks. One remarkable feature, for example, is the isolated circle of dots in the lower left quarter of the centre, which is not repeated in the others.
The binding is probably of French origin.
