3 [Binding, Fine- Arts & Crafts] Sonnets by Lord Alfred Douglas

London: The Academy Publishing Company, 1909.

Second edition. 8 x 6 inches. Expertly bound (unsigned) in elegant Arts & Crafts style in royal blue crushed morocco with an artful series of four series of gilt blossom arising from intertwining and winding double filet design work, as well as gilt rectilinear squares with dots. In the central area, there is an inlaid green border, with a small gilt wreath of inlaid white flowers nestled in the top and bottom. Gilt-ruled spine compartments, but no lettering. Superb full morocco doublures in blue and green with a gilt central ornament on the front doublure reading "C I". Green morocco flyleaves. Printed on Aldwych handmade paper. Postface by T.W.H. Crosland. Slight fading to spine and some light foxing to pages, otherwise fine. A distinctively A&C binding displaying a high degree of expertise and creativity.
