[Binding, Fine- Arts & Crafts, Vale Press] The World at Auction

London: Hacon & Ricketts, Vale Press, 1899.

First edition. Attractively bound Arts & Crafts period binding in full russet morocco with simple but alluring gouged border designs leaving the negative space around gilt, inner rectangular border design of weaving strapwork and leaf pattern, similar motif on spine with nice bold dot patterns, thick inner dentelles. One of 210 copies, first leaf with wood-engraved border and initial by Charles Ricketts, a scarce Vale Press title, made more desirable by the binding combination. Slight wear to corners and ext. spine, else very good.

Price: $1,750.00   Item #3666
