This codex is a good example of a flap binding. It has a soft cover, lacking
boards under the leather. Its lightweight design made it ideal for portability
a desirable characteristic for a commonplace book. The worn condition
of the cover suggests that the owner, Johannes Wintzler, often carried
the book around with him.
Purchased for the A. D. White Library in 1925.
Commonplace Book of Johannes Wintzler. Germany,
