Full cloth binding with gold stamping on spine and front cover. Front cover design stamped in blind on back cover. Brown cartridge paper endpapers. Edges gilded. The extravagance of the design reflects the styles of the mid-century.
Inside the Codex Rotundus lays a 266 page book of hours in Latin and French. The manuscript is unique in form and size: the pages are cut approximately circular in shape and measure a little over 9cm in diameter. The book binding feat here is enormous: since the layers are bound together on a mere 3cm book spine, the body of the book must be held together by 3 clasps.
