Seller: matts_diaries_curiosities_dustytomes (1,594) 100%, Location: San Francisco, California, Ships to: US & many other countries, Item: 202505696911 Up for auction is a massive folio sized book published in 1569, titled Institutiones DIVI CAESARIS Ivstiniani Edition Postrema, or Justinian Law Emperor Justinian Institutes of Caesar, in which elements of civil unique method to three books in one. This volume measures 10 x 7 inches and is covered in a much older handwritten manuscript binding. I assume the manuscript is from the 15th, or 16h century its quite worn but has a beautiful texture and remnants of the original red and black ink. The book contains thee books on law that must be at least 1000 pages or sheets in length. The paper is hands laid and the type is black and red includes many small engravings that begin the text. At some point a few manuscript fragments were used as a type of book mark and glued to the sheets on the end of the paper.This is contemporary with the book. There are a few areas on the sheets with marginalia from the 17th or 18th century. This volume is in poor condition: The cover is coming away from the binding many sheets are starting to pull away from the binding as well. Although the bulk of the book is still bound in sections. The spine shows extensive loss (see photos for details).I believe its still quite an unusual and attractive volume ,but needs restoration.
