At each corner of the border is a lozenge-shaped tool. At each corner of the frame is a circular tool. The spine has five raised bands. Gold-tooled in the second panel are the words: Burgos - El libro De Propietatibus Rerum. Gold-tooled at the base of the spine are the place and date: Tholosa 1494. The remaining panels are blind-tooled with a lion surrounded by stylised foliage.The pastedowns are of marbled paper featuring the curl pattern in pink, yellow, blue and cream. The board edges are gold-tooled with a pattern of diagonal fillets at the corners and at the junction with the spine. The turn-ins are blind-tooled with parallel hatching.
