Small 4to. (212 x 143 mm.) Bound in early twentieth-century full black morocco by Jarrold & Sons Ltd. of Norwich, elaborate gilt inner dentelles, marbled endpapers, a.e.g.; lii, 475, [1]pp., decorative title-page printed in red, black and gold within a decorative frame, the text throughout contained within black and red ruled borders, printed historiated initials and decorative floriated borders, numerous black and white illustrations throughout after paintings by Fra Bartolomeo, Raphael, Poussin, Overbeck and others.
The front pastedown bears a large armorial book label executed in pen, ink, water-colour, and gold, inscribed in red ink at the lower margin, ‘Neville H. Noller St. Andrew’s Chambers, Castle St. Norwich’

This copy extensively extra-illuminated in gold, and water-colour by Neville H. Noller, presumably the Bedfordshire water-colour artist, born in 1882. Illumination of the twelve calendar pages is complete, the majority of the initials similarly so, as well as many of the floral borders - all executed in a more than competent manner.
