The Princess: SOLD

"The Princess" by Alfred Lord Tennyson. Published by Crowell, 1902. I believe this is not the original binding, but a amateur bookbinder's project. The new cover is suede leather.

Original interior pages are very clean and bright, and the suede has held up nicely, no flaking or powdering. Rear hinge is a bit loose.

Sesame and Lilies: SOLD

"Sesame and Lilies" by John Ruskin. Published by Putnam and Sons / The Knickerbocker Press. No date listed, circa 1910. A volume from the Ariel Booklets.

Flexible full leather binding with gilt decoration and lettering on front cover and spine. Gilt top edge. Endpapers show some foxing, otherwise a very clean and tight copy.
