A Choice of Manuscripts and Book-Bindings free pdf Excerpt from A Choice of Manuscripts and Book-Bindings: From the Library of Isabella Stewart Gardner, Fenway Court Paper, 6 x 3, ff. 129- 15 lines to a page, in two columns- cent. xvi. Each leaf is inlaid in a leaf 10 x 6, and the book has been put into a dull red morocco binding with a Persian design painted in gold. The title of each section of the poem is written on a narrow label, the title itself occupying an ogival (or sometimes rectangular) medallion in the centre of the label, the ends of which are filled with charming ornaments of great variety in gold and colours, generally on a blue ground. There are five pictures: No. 1. The poet reading to a prince. They are in a garden, the prince seated on a rock at the left, beside a brook- he wears a green tunic and a slate-coloured coat. The poet stands at the right- he wears a vermilion tunic and a blue coat. In the background are a cypress, a flowering tree, and two other trees. Gold mountain and blue sky. No. 2. A young man and a woman in a garden, by a brook. He is seated at the right, and offers her a golden cup which he has just filled from a golden bottle- he wears a vermilion tunic. She stands beside a tree, holding a book- her dress is yellow, her coat slate-coloured. The tree is very beautiful: its leaves are vermilion or shades of green and yellow- its flowers are vermilion or gold or white. The background for the tree is bright blue- behind is a gold mountain and a little light-blue sky. No. 3. A young man and a young woman seated on a couch in a garden, a servant standing at the left. In the background, two flowering trees and a gold meadow. The young man wears a vermilion tunic and bright blue coat- the young woman, a light blue dress and olive-green coat- the servant, a yellow dress and slate-coloured coat.
