|Binding||Modern vellum binding by Katharine Adams.|
Notes from original catalogue: Very finely decorated. | Cat. D (Brantwood, 1894), II.5 almost certainly was this Bible: '1 vol cut up, four other vols of same in white vellum. 12 leaves in cabinet of writing table', then rebound into 1 vol. by Katharine Adams at the instigation of S.C. Cockerell before being bought by Yates Thompson. Cockerell knew that the MS was perfect when it came into John Ruskin's possession, so he must have had it rebound into five volumes and later dismembered one of them. Cockerell and Joan Severn actively cooperated in reassembling the loose leaves before the MS was rebound and sold to Thompson. Cockerell returned "The white covers of the 4 thin Bible volumes" (FM MS 74-2002) to JRS in May 1902. | Additional provenance notes: Monastery of Mont-Saint-Eloi, near Arras, 17th-18th c.; Dr Adam Clarke (no. 25, 1835), sold Sotheby's 20-3 June 1836, no. 482, £10, to Cochrane?; William Bragge; sold Sotheby's 7-10 June 1876, no. 366 to Quaritch, £250; Arthur Severn, sold on 13 May 1902 to H.
