Gorgeous art binding by Pomey, with crimson onlay borders surrounding forest green morocco, with blindstamping of Art Nouveau floral decoration, and morocco borders surrounding WIlliam Morris-style floral repeat endpapers. Limited edition of 310 copies. 8vo. 23.5 by 15 cm. 117 pp. The decoration within by Ricketts is also very much in the Morris-style. Ricketts (1866-1931) was a versatile artist who achieved success in theater design in addition to book illustration and typography. He was a co-founder of The Dial with his life partner, and the two were in the true sense of the word, antiquarians who gloried in the artistry of the past over their present. Spine slightly darkened. Light rubbing along joint extremities. Pristine within.
