Cloth binding

Thomas Robert Macquoid


Blue cloth binding with gilt overlays

6¾ x 5¼ inches

This is the front cover of the American version of the book, published, probably, a year after the appearance of the British imprint in 1861. The central vignette of the two birds reproduces a detail on the pictorial title page. The titling and enclosing frame are probably also by Macquoid.
