Item Description: Paris: Éditions de la Revue Verve, 1940:, 1940. Quarto (345 x 246 mm). Contemporary three-quarter cream-coloured morocco designed and finished by L. Mounteney, decorative gilt spine with red morocco circular onlays, sides with gilt fleur-de-lys motif, purple moiré silk sides, all edges gilt, blue moiré silk endleaves. Joints cracked at head and tail of spine, sides faded at periphery, some old water stains on back cover, a little wear to extremities. 12 mounted colour plates. A very striking binding designed and finished by Leonard Mounteney, "an exhibition finisher for Riviere & Sons of London. Like many other European and British binders, Mounteney emigrated to America where, in his case, he found employment at the Donnelley Bindery in Chicago and later went to work for the Cuneo Fine Binding Studio of Milwaukee" (Philip R. Bishop, Extra Binding and The Mosher Books, IOBA Standard: The Journal of the Independent Online Booksellers Association). This particular example was most probably executed for the American collector Earl J. Brady (his catalogue file cards are loosely inserted). The quality of colour reproduction is remarkable considering the circumstances of the time. Bookseller Inventory # 115872
