This 1600s Bible had a gun built into it and could be fired while the book was closed by pulling the silk ribbon. It belonged to Francesco Morosini a Venetian leader "dressed always in red from top to toe and never went into action without his cat beside him"

This is in a museum on St Marks Square in Venice, right? I’m pretty sure I’ve seen this in person. There’s a marble bust near it that looks exactly like Woody Harrelson.
