Binding for “The Story of Rosina”

Hugh Thomson, designer; unsigned


Elaborate gilt blocking on smooth, dark green cloth; the book was also issued in red and blue, with a dust-wrapper repeating the design.

7¼ x 4¾ inches

A typically rustic scene, characteristically using the hieratic designs of stacked forms and elaborated interlaces that were favoured by Thomson.
