Abstract
  • IE TCD MS 925, Theodore Gaza, Grammatica, written in one hand. By John Serbopoulos, England. Created November 1480. Extent: 119 folios. Contemporary leather-stamped binding over a front beech board and an oak back board, with an elaborate design of flowery lozenges in the central rectangle, framed by vegetable and animal (dragons) motifs inserted in crossing longitudinal and horizontal bands, with a ‘grate’ design interposed between these motifs; the nails that once held the fore-clasps survive, though the clasps were cut off; the spine, which had been completely lost, was replaced during conservation (2011) and the text block was re-sewn at the original stations. The conservation report states that the book was originally sewn on three tanned double leather thongs that were laced into the timber binding boards and pegged with a similar wedge of leather. Because the remains of the tanned leather sewing supports were still in place in the board lacing holes, it was decided during conservation to fray out the new supports on the outside of the binding boards while feeding some strands through the lacing holes and fraying out on the inside. Where no original support fragment remained the new linen support was laced in and wedged with an alum tawed calfskin wedge.
