Read Condition Report Read Condition Report

Provenance

Clement X (pope, 1670-1676), arms on binding; HH.c.24, old shelfmark on inside lower cover; John Roland Abbey, armorial bookplate dated 1933, sale, Sotheby's, 21 June 1967, lot 2208

Catalogue Note

The binding is plausibly from the Andreoli workshop, though the tools do not match up exactly with those in Legatura romana barocca. Legature papali records a Neapolitan binding made for Clement X, which seems to contain the same papal tiara stamp.
