Binding for Enoch Arden

Designed by Arthur Hughes


Gilt interlace, produced using a brass die, on sand cloth; also issued in blue and green cloth

8¾ x 6¾ inches

A complex design on the rear board that uses emblematic details to reflect on Enoch's lost opportunity as a child of nature, rather than a man effectively lost at sea.
