The bindings of Ludovicus Ravescot have been studied by Georges Colin ("A new list of the bindings of Ludovicus Ravescot", in Incunabula: studies in fifteenth-century printed books presented to Lotte Hellinga (London, 1999), pp.353-370). The rebus stamp (containing a bird, "raaf", the letters "ve" and a bow, "schot") is thought to represent Ravescot's name; the other stamps used on this binding comprise a pelican, an enclosed garden, a wyvern, and a double-headed eagle. Colin opines that Ravescot sold on his bindery when he took up printing in the 1480s, so this binding may have been executed by his successor (Colin's Second Phase Binder). This book does not feature in Colin's list.
