About this Item

A marvelous example of an American acid-stained autumnal binding with a gilt spine extra. The boards are tooled with a gilt double rule border around their perimeter; inside that border and almost touching the inner rule is a blind-impressed roll of flowers and leaves. The spine is richly tooled in gilt with a variety of single rules, rolls, and a handsome, large, finely detailed stamp used twice. A black leather spine label offers author, title, and volume number; the autumnal colors of the binding overall are red, pale yellow, brown, and green. => The stamp so effectively used here has been identified as one engraved by Samuel Dodd, 19th-century bookbinders' tool maker of Bloomfield, NJ. The text present is preceded by a good engraving by Maverick entitled "People of Masada." Provenance: Late 19th- or 20th-century ownership stamp on front free endpaper of Henry M. Bissell. 12mo (18 cm; 7"). Vol. 6 only of 6. Frontis., 317, [1] pp. Shoemaker 21077; Rosenbach, Jewish, 276; Dodd's stamp identified by scholar Steve Beare. Binding as above, lightly rubbed at the joints (outside); browning to endpapers from glue action and ownership stamp on front free one. Some foxing. Vol. 6 only: Sold as a binding and very good as such. Bookseller Inventory # 35830
