Date

Description

Binders routinely used manuscript and printed waste, both vellum and paper, in their work, thereby unintentionally preserving for posterity works that might otherwise have been lost. On occasion, as seen in this example, the entire binding is a recycled manuscript leaf. This collection of orations given in honor of famous men was printed by Paulus Manutius for the Accademia Veneziana, and bound in a biblical manuscript leaf that contains Genesis 49:1 through 50:4.
