Two metal clasps shaped like the heads of cherubs hold the book closed. The binding also has five raised bands. Vellum cords with fleur-de-lis shaped raised device and yapp edges give a medieval style to the binding. The upper board features a painting of an oil lamp framed by Laurel leaves. The lower board, which is covered in a green and red floral pattern, also has a pinting of a lion in a frame of laurel leaves. Spine painted with scarlet flourishes.
