Cover for Roger's "Italy"
Gold-stamped green leather binding
8 1/8 x 5 1/4 inches
This handsome full leather binding may have been intended as a gift book, but the beautiful design and extreme precision of the gold-stamping — particularly the Green urn — suggest it could have been bound by the purchaser, too. [GPL].
