1) Find out the approximate period of the jacket and the binding by 
comparing them to the examples in the Toledano Price Guide. This will 
give you a range of dates.

2) Using that range and the catalog at the back of the book, check 
against the dating key:

The people of the various provinces are strictly forbidden to have in 
their possession any swords, bows, spears, firearms or other types of 
arms. The possession of these elements makes difficult the collection 
of taxes and dues, and tends to permit uprising.
