Jase's Books: 'Handbound Gothic Parchment Journals,
Grimoires, Diaries and Albums'

Madagascar fossil ammonites, Greek binding/Coptic endbands.
'Cod. Pal. germ. 78 Ulrich Erthel Beschreibung des Armbrustschießens in Stuttgart' 1560 - a sort of a shooting club ledger or record [I'm kind of guessing] - all the rest of the illustrations from memory were of coats of arms so it is I suppose, an armorial book. Nice gothic calligraphy.
pdf file (1.3Mb) Bibliorare catalogue which includes a few other eclectic images, including a couple of the Pantagruel illustrations from Desprez in the posts below (the amazingly weird caricature material that BoingBoing would have been better off linking). I believe this image belongs to a set which includes the 2nd last image here.
download so I baulked at returning for other samples.

There would have been more but the first game of the World Cup is starting. And by the way, the annotated archives are the best way to negotiate this site.
