    LEWIS, Percival
    The New Forest.

    London: Payne, 1811. Full morocco, 11 1/2 inches tall. A magnificent binding by J. Rodwell of Golden Square and with their ticket, in full straight grain morocco. With gilt and blind raised bands, elaborate gilding to the panels, dentelles and all edges. The boards are framed within a sequence of gilt and blind rolls and fillets. Engraved frontispiece and folding hand coloured map. There is some staining to the margin of the frontispiece, otherwise the text is clean. The binding is heavily rubbed but not splitting and without loss, the edges of the boards are heavily scuffed. Rodwell was a great binder in the Regency period and examples of his work, with their ticket, are scarce.
