[Binding, Fine- Guild of Women Binders, Unsigned] Paolo & Francesca

London: John Lane, The Bodley Head, 1900.

Ninth Edition. Superb full calf binding, undoubtedly by the Guild of Women Binders, and having come from a collection of books bound by the Guild, though unsigned as often found with Guild binders. Attractive center oval blind-stamped and gilt-ruled and stipled design on front cover extending upward and downward and ending in gilt blossom designs. Very attractive spine with lengthwise long stem design and innovative lettering, gilt designs on dentelles. Unobtrusive and fait water marks present, though not detracting.
