FABULOUS 'GUILD OF WOMEN-BINDERS' FULL GOATSKIN BINDING
STEVENSON, Robert Louis ~ A Child’s Garden of Verses.
London: John Lane, 1904
Full goatskin, 7.5 inches tall. A fabulous binding with all the features of the best 'Guild of Women-Binders' work but with a monogram we can not decipher. With raised bands, gilt framed panels , wide dentelles and all edges with remarkably bright gauffered edges. The elaborately tooled design on the upper board is of a fantastical arboreal scene highlighted with green calf onlays framed within the title and author. Beautiful ribbed fabric endpapers.
