About the Book

We're sorry; this specific copy is no longer available. Here are our closest matches for From the Hills of Dream: Threnodies, Songs and Later Poems by MacLeod, Fiona.

Description:

Octavo. (xvi), 203pp. First edition. A unique copy in an elaborate contemporary painted vellum binding. As befitting the works of a Scottish writer, the paintings take inspiration from Celtic calligraphy and designs. A border of gold leaves and stars against a green background frames the front cover. An intricate center lettering panel bears the title, which is decorated with delicate spirals and leaves. The spine is illuminated with the title, two floral devices, stars, and a dove. The back cover is decorated with a central device and a Celtic-style decoration in the top left corner. The paintings were done by the American-born artist Da Loria Norman, who likely decorated books for the London binder Robert Riviére, as well as others. Norman was born Belle Elkin Mitchell in Kansas in 1872 and moved to England with her family early in her life. Norman began a friendship with Fiona MacLeod (William Sharp) through correspondence after separating from her husband in 1905. She found comfort in MacLeod's poetry while in an abusive relationship and, in turn, felt inspired to illuminate his works. Letters reveal that he sent her at least one book, saying, "In it, though disguised, there is much of my own sorrow; and so, perchance I thought, heart would speak to heart." Her work shows the influence of Arts and Crafts, Art Nouveau, and Pre-Raphaelite styles. While decorating bindings and illuminating books were a common hobby among society women at the time, Norman elevated it into a successful business and did most of her work on commission. An autodidact who learned by studying medieval manuscripts at the British Museum, Norman was also an accomplished painter and created especially fine works of needlepoint. Although she is not widely known today, her work attracted critical attention and was praised by several artists of the time, including Walter Crane. Some light soiling to vellum, and faint rubbing to the gilding and green paint. Ownership inscription on free endleaf. Bookseller Inventory #
