SCARCE WORK MAGNIFICENT FULL MOROCCO
FRANKLIN, John (illustrator) ~ Parables of our Lord.
London: John Mitchell, (1851)
Full morocco, 14.5 inches tall. A magnificent publishers binding with heavy twin raised bands and blind tooling to the spine and boards. Gilt title on the upper board and all edges gauffered. There are some marks and indentations to the upper board but the leather is not penetrated and there is no splitting or loss, overall a superb example. There are 10 parables with fine calligraphic text and superb engraved decoration by John Franklin.
