NotesA highly attractive copy of Longfellow's poetry, in a superb binding, anonymous though very much in the Sangorski & Sutcliffe style with elaborate use of coloured morocco inlay to a floral pattern.
Octavo (188 x 130 mm). Finely bound in dark blue morocco, titles in gilt direct to spine, floral motifs in red morocco onlays within elaborate gilt foliage to boards and compartments, foliate motifs in gilt and red dots of red morocco onlay to turn-ins, pink endpapers, gilt edges.
Engraved portrait frontispiece, title page printed in red and black.
Discreet colour touch-ups to extremities, the binding otherwise sharp and vibrant, internally crisp; a fine copy.
