There are four main operations in binding a manuscript: first, sewing the quires together; second, attaching the boards; third, covering the boards; and, last, decorating the covers. Medieval bindings with wooden boards can be divided into three main types such as Carolingian, Romanesque, and Gothic. This chapter provides an account of the Stonyhurst Gospel and its relatives, of English Carolingian and early Romanesque bindings, followed by a discussion of some other kinds of evidence concerning pre- and post-Conquest bindings. The boards of Victor Codex are Carolingian, covered with red skin decorated with small blindstamped tools of Carolingian type. Two of the four mid-eleventh-century English gospel-books made for Judith, later countess of Flanders, still have early silver-gilt treasure bindings. A ninth-century Continental manuscript with a limp cover of skin was at Malmesbury, and it was still there in the early twelfth when it was used by William of Malmesbury.
