Morocco leather

8.7 x 7 inches

An Arts and Crafts full brown morocco binding with gilt-stamped multiple convex spaces filled with thick dots, a rose at each corner with leaf designs, and a striking central block of six gilt rectangles getting smaller as they move toward the center. The spine has five raised bands, the edges of which are ruled in gilt. The top edge is gilt; others are untrimmed. The book also has hand marbled endpapers and turn-ins with gilt ruled borders and floral corner pieces.
