About this Item

Octavo. 51pp. One of 500 copies. A one-act play, set in Medieval Spain, by the English poet and dramatist T. Sturge Moore. Designed by Bruce Rogers and bound in full golden morocco by Peter Franck, who at one time executed tooled leather bindings for the Roycroft Shop, where he worked alongside Dard Hunter, Louis Kinder, and Sterling Lord. Franck later went to work for Rudge before opening his own bindery in Connecticut, where he bound a number of Dard Hunter's Mountain House Press books. This binding features a center gilt-tooled design to both boards, fashioned of printers' ornaments that were probably designed by Rogers. Some of the ornaments are repeated in a gilt border to the outer edges of the boards, on the turn-ins, and on the spine, which is in five compartments with gilt lettering to the center compartment. Franck's imprint appears in gilt at the bottom of the spine and on the rear turn-in, which also bears the publisher's imprint. Endpapers marbled. Some uniform toning to spine, else fine. T.e.g. Housed in a fleece-lined morocco and decorated-paper folding case, lettered in gilt on the spine. Case shows some wear, with a two-inch split to the bottom hinge as well as some chipping and rubbing to the spine and corners. Bookseller Inventory # 21130
