Catalogue Note

The wolf's head is a motif found stamped on Bolognese bindings of the period (see de Marinis, vol. II, p. 5, nos 1249 and especially 1271, both of which are connected with German students at the university). De Marinis no. 1287 (a binding dated Bologna 1522) has the same outer border and the same flame corner-pieces. The owner of this work could well have been a student at the Natio Germanica Bononiae, the association of German students in Bologna.
