    St Petersburg, Shipovnik, 1906. Full morocco, 6 1/2 inches tall. An extraordinarily rare Russian volume on the designs of Aubrey Beardsley in a full crushed morocco in a binding stamped by Oliver & Boyd. The binding has gilt raised bands, simple gilt tooling to the panels and ornate gilt tooling to the boards incorporating peacocks, fountain and swags. Gilt dentelles and all edges. This volume is the first album of Beardsley’s designs published in Russia and contains 57 full page designs and 2 vignettes. We can find no other complete example, let alone in this condition, which could be described as mint. From the celebrated library of fine bindings of a Scottish Banker.
