Via the always beautiful and interesting Bibi's box, a collection of hand-bound books at Princeton's library. No word yet if Miskatonic University plans a similar exhibit.

Published: Basel: Johann Amerbach, not after 1490. Location: Rare Books: Incunabula Collection (ExI) Call number: 5866.174 Spine height: 16 cm Italian, fifteenth century A fifteenth-century Italian binding with painted gold and a design with Islamic characteristics. Author: Virgil Title: Aeneid and Georgics. Locale: Rome, ca. 1515-1525.
