Terence, Comedies, with the commentary of Petrus Antesignanus Rapistagnensis.
Binding of blind-stamped pigskin over pasteboard. The pigskin presumably once extended over the whole of the boards, but has been cut back near the half-way point from the spine, and the remainder replaced with parts of leaves from a 15th-cent. manuscript liturgical book in gothic textura with red initials and rubric. That on the back is so rubbed as to be illegible.
Pr. Mathias Bonhome, Lyon, 1560. Heavily used, perhaps in a classroom.
Inside the front board are mottos in Greek and Latin with the monogram ‘CIC’. On the first flyleaf in carmine: ‘Iohannes Christianus Wes(?el) Magdeburgensis Saxo / Anno CID ID CCVII Symbol’/ Iesus Crucifixi Vulnera Me Salvant’. The date is 1707. A similar inscription appears to have been washed off the inside of the back board. Lower down, less formally, ‘Jo: Ch: Wapsa / Anno 1702 & 7 Aprilis’. Also, perhaps in the same hand, 22 gl. On the title page ‘Iohannes Christianus Wapsa / Anno 1702 / & 6 Aprilis.’ Below is ‘Henricus Sebast. Wapsa Iur. Pract. [blank] comp. sibi Halae Saxon. Prid. Cal. Maii anno CID IC CLXVIII’. Further down again is ‘[erased] gyl’. Near the head ‘F. 3’ and ‘Ch: Coll: Tasm:’; probably given by Rev. R. R. Davies in 1852. Inside the front board are pencilled 2228 and No. 200.
