Featuring a German pattern originally crafted from beechwood and dark brown leather, this stylized cover once contained Jeremiah Schweiglinum's Handbook of the Lord's Supper. It was produced at the Berg & Neuber printing house in Nuremberg, Germany - especially notable for its female director, Katharina Gerlachin - in 1568. With an emphasis on exuberant gold decoration, this cover is emblematic of the era's artistic expressiveness.
