    • Notas Bibliográficas: 405 x 300 mm. Red morocco portfolio with elaborate giltstamped oriental decoration to upper cover, narrower gilt borders to lower cover, and gilt borders to both pastedowns, finished with a single piece of crimson-coloured calf. A highly representative survival: extremeties a little rubbed and corners a little bumped, but finely preserved in general. An old label to the top left corner of the inside upper cover, numbered in ink "17" in Arabic and "75" in Western numerals, shows that this sumptuously decorated portfolio was indeed used in a Middle Eastern collection to store sheaves of writing. leer más
