Description

A nice vintage leather book cover.  I believe it is the Lion of St. Mark on the front, holding a book with PAX TIBI MAR CE EVE NCE LISTA MEVS, which I think translated means "Peace is with you my dear Evangelist".  There are smaller griffins at the top and bottom of the front and back. 

This cover is in good condition, the wrapped leather on the edge is missing in a few places, there is some wear to the bottom of the inside panel which holds the front of the book, there is some light staining to the fabric lining at the top -this does not affect the leather.  From lying flat there is a fold seam down the spine.

It has the initials L.M.B. stamped in gold on the front, and Made In Italy stamped inside.

The total size of this cover is 9 x 13 1/2 inches, that is the outer edge. The spine is two inches wide.
