CONDITION:
Leather over wood boards. Part of a manuscript is visible inside the spine. Leather is embossed. The book once had clasps, and indentations and screw holes are visible on the cover. The book has likely been rebound at least once, since the handwritten notes continue into the binding.

Many handwritten notes throughout. Many make connections between entries or add explanation. Parts of the title page woodblock have been coloured in by hand.

4F1 has been repaired with paste and lightweight paper.

Most of the final page is wanting.

Items found between pages: Fruit stem follows A2, folded paper book mark follows 2F1 (the paper has been cut with tassels to resemble a leather bookmark), birch bark follows 3G1, a feather follows 3S2, a folded paper with some calculations follows 3Z1, seeds follow 4A2.

PROVENANCE:
Handwritten on A1v “Ex libris mei Joanis Pebri Vensburni [?] 1687, 2 February.”
