KALTHOEBER CAT'S PAW BINDING
(GRAVES, Richard) ~ The Spiritual Quixote: or, the Summer’s Ramble of Mr. Geoffry Wildgoose, a Comic Romance.
London: Dodsley, 1792
3 volume set, 7 inches tall. A delightful binding by one of the great binders of the period, Kalthoeber, in full cat's paw calf. With wide gilt bands, ornate gilt centre tools and a gilt roll framing the boards. With the armorial bookplate of the Earl of Kerry. The orange binder's ticket of Kalthoeber has, as usual oxidized. Rubbed and somewhat creased but still a very interesting item.
