Item:192727612205Up for auction is a very unusual volume printed 1643, titled : Bibliothece- Cordesianae - Catalogvs, CvM Indice Titvlorvm. Parisis, -Antonivis Vitray. This volume is written in Latin and measures 8 x 7 inches, It includes 544 sheets with rough edges and appears to be complete.There is one engraving and title page embellishment I tried to research this title with no success. Even more interesting is the volumes cover is a thick vellum French manuscript that is quite lengthy. Pasted on top of this manuscript is another smaller a piece of vellum that was attached to the larger vellum manuscript cover.It appears to be an explanation of the volume, or catalog and includes the date July 1642. Inside the volume are two lose parchment like manuscript sheets, also written in French that include signatures. The front cover is a longer manuscript seems much older than the parchment sheets. The cover manuscript has pulled away from the spine it was originally tied together but it is complete is still manages as book cover. The manuscripts may contain some interesting information when translated.
