Binding from On Christian rulers


Description Provenance Credit
Description This earlier binding was removed, preserved, and is housed separately from the manuscript. Decorated with red and yellow brocade, it was made by Gruel (probably after 1906) to replace a leather binding with a clasp and a pastedown from a thirteenth-century Gospel.
Provenance [Fol. 117 (originally rear pastedown) has 13th century office of Matins for Saint Catherine (with neumes)]; Gustav Ritter von Emmich; Gustav Ritter von Emmich Sale, Vienna, March 15, 1906, no. I, pl. VIII; Gruel and Engelmann Collection [no. 609]; Leon Gruel, Paris; Henry Walters, Baltimore [date and mode of acquisition unknown]; Walters Art Museum, 1931, by bequest.
