A description is given of a girdle book in the collections of the Museum Meermanno-Westreenianum in The Hague (shelf-mark 1 F 50). It contains a German Prayer Book (by the 'Printer of the Rochuslegende', Nuremberg, 1480/1484). Although the leather pouch of the binding is damaged and the brass hinged hook broken and altered, it represents an original girdle book in its first binding, consisting of a single leather cover. It was probably bound in the Nuremberg area, towards the end of the fifteenth century.
