Abstract

Heinrich Roch’s chronicles of Lusatia (Germany), Bohemia (Czech Republic), Silesia, and other areas, is dressed in a pigskin binding. Pigskin is an inflexible material and does not take blocking well. The binder has done his best to apply the images of flowers, dots, fleur-de-lys, and lozenges that make up the design. Indeed, the year the binding was applied has long disappeared, with only the word ‘ANNO’ barely visible in the top panel above the black-inked stamped crest, which itself is hardly distinguishable. One clasp remains. Roch’s chronicle is renowned as a source recording earthquakes, great fires and floods in Europe, and vampirism.
