All typographical elements such as type, vignets, typographical borders, printer's mark etc are printed from the original cuts in the Plantin Museum. Sewn, blind wrapper. ( according the colophon the wrapper ought to be also decorated with elements of the Plantin Press. These are here absent and we doubt if they were executed).

It contains a manuscript ex-dono to a member of the organizing committee. E;g. The printer's mark is printed in 3 colours, the centre piece is derived from an edition of the ''Conciones...' 1575 ( Voet 56B, Voet printer's mark nr. 28). Zeldzame mooi verzorgde gelegenheidsdruk met materiaal van het Plantijnse Huis. .
