Each customer chose which manual decorations he wanted included in the printed text. Depending on his taste and the available budget, he decided how he would have the book adapted after printing. This can be seen in these two copies of Thomas de Chabham’s Liber poenitalis: one of them is decorated, the other has been left completely blank. So individual copies of the same edition may look completely different.


Thomas de Chabham, Liber poenitentialis. Leuven, Joannes de Westfalia, 1483–1485. Antwerpen, Erfgoedbibliotheek Hendrik Conscience: B 4471: 1e ex.
