London: Dent, 1904. Full vellum, 8 inches tall. One of Cedric Chivers of Bath's celebrated translucent vellum bindings in excellent condition. Particularly suited to this idyllic work, the binding has an image of the village with a mother of pearl frame within a delightful border and floral designs with red calf onlays. The title and design on the spine are also hand coloured under the vellum. The stamp of Cedric Chivers in gilt, is found on the rear turn in. Decorated with 25 colour plates by Charles E. Brock. The binding is in excellent condition with no warping having been housed in it's original, now slightly frayed, felt lined cloth case. There is some foxing, particularly to the first few pages and to the verso of the plates. The vellum itself is very slightly spotted but this is still an exceptionally nice example of this style of binding.
