Abstract

This edition of Greek poetry printed in Germany in 1715 displays true recycling by an unknown binder. A 14th century vellum manuscript detailing a portion of a scientific work has been used for the entire binding. It is not a tidy job. The binder has disregarded the old vellum fold, which shows past sewing holes, and wrapped it willy-nilly around pasteboard covers. To give the book an air of respectability, a partially gold-tooled spine label has been pasted on.
