[Binding, Fine- Roycroft Bindery: Kinder, Louis] Essay on Self-Reliance

East Aurora: Roycroft Press, 1902.

First Edition. 8vo, (9 x 6 inches). A striking full morocco binding by Kinder featuring an innovative highlighting employed by Kinder to give the appearance of grained wood, or simply a pleasing and novel effect. The full light brown smooth morocco has color variations and background patterning ranging from light to darker brown, and overlaid onto that is a complex and novel vein design that is expanded onto the spine and then the full back cover (i.e. no repeat to the design). We have never seen such a fine example of this patterning, and top it off, the cover is attractively adorned with three gilt leafed, long stems terminating in blossoms. This patterning is repeated on inner dentelles.#22 of 100 Copies printed on Japan Vellum, Signed and Illumined by Lily Ess. In original Roycroft labeled box (worn). The book is in fine condition. "On a High Shelf," David Ogle OB-068-02 and the binding featured in color (pg. 203).
