book-historia:

Had a bit of a splurge the other day at an auction… Not the little guy, the big guy! It’s a 17th century oak Bible box, and it looks an awful lot like my wee model of a chained book and lectern by Bryson and sons. Now I just need to buy a 17th century Bible to go in it! (The book currently on the stand is a copy of Erasmus’s Moriae Encomium, published in 1648)

Here’s a conservation treatment of a miniature bible on a podium, like this one!
