About this Item

Near-Fine; front and rear covers have polished leather panels; only fault is some faint mottling and scuffs where polish has worn away; otherwise leather and gilding are in perfect condition. Bookplates on first & second fep. Pages very fresh & bright. Finely bound by Bayntun Bindery of Bath, England (whose stamp is on verso of ffep). Covers full green leather with double gilt fillet border; edges and turn-ins with gilt scallop-patterned roll in the French style. Spine divided into 6 panels by raised bands; panel 2 with title in gilt letters on chocolate morocco inlay; panel 3 with "Stevenson" in gilt letters on red morocco inlay; remaining panels with stylized floral designs, gilt. Marbled endpapers. This edition contains additional poems in the same vein written by Stevenson for his young step-son Lloyd Osbourne (later to be his co-author on 2 novels). These poems were first "published" by Osbourne on his toy printing press, and adorned with wood engravings by R.L.S. that are reproduced in this volume. A beautiful book.
