Description

This basic covering of plain thick vellum may have begun life as an interim measure, and its replacement by something more elegant never took place. As a result, we see a typical example of a simple covering that barely protects the volume. Grattius, Nemesianus, and Ovid’s Haleutica are editiones principes. Hunting and fishing constitute the unifying theme of the six poetical works gathered here.
