Marbelled paper on cardboard. The spine and the corners are in white leather. On the spine the shelfmark is imprinted with golden letters. "COD. ISL. PAPP. 8:o N:o 8". A previous binding made from a medieval parchment leaf containing a religious text in Latin has been bound in when the volume was rebound. It appears that some kind of clasp was made from thin strips of the parchment and these are still present. The leaf is extremely dark and the text faded.
