[Binding, Fine- Arts & Crafts] The Works [of Francis Thompson]

London: Burns & Oates, 1913.

First edition thus. Three Volumes, bound similarly in full tan crushed morocco, ornate gilt front covers with central tudor rose, leaf and vine design and bordered by multiple rulings, two of which are broken by dots, gilt spines. Contemporary unsigned binding in charming Arts & Crafts style, very reminiscent of Douglas Cocekerell. All volumes with tissue-guarded frontispieces and title-pages printed in red and black; a handsome production. Spines very slightly faded; upper board of Prose volume with a few tiny nicks, just missing gilt. A lovely set.

Price: $2,250.00   Item #3806
