Spec. Coll. copy bound with: Hoc in uolumine continentur Bernardi Iustiniani Oratoris Clarissimi Orationes....Impressum Venetiis: Per Bernardinum Benalium, [1492?]. Bound in original calf backed oak boards of Bavarian or southern German origin (34 cm), which belonged to an unidentified German student of humanistic interests who studied in Italy around 1490-1495, either at Bologna or Padua. The present volume was probably commissioned by the student upon his return home to Germany. His miniature arms are found on the last page, and his manuscript title on upper board. Calf portion of covers bordered with double rules in blind, enclosing a roll of flowering vines forming ovals, each oval containing thistle or pomegranate ornaments; backstrip with blind-ruled raised bands; brass catches embossed with name "Maria," a design typical of southern German bindings; the pomegranate is often found on such bindings as a symbol of the Resurrection. Some marginal annotations in a clear and educated hand, featuring pictorial symbols, pointing fingers, and fancy marginal brackets. Purchase, Bennett Gilbert, 1987.
