Tutte le figure delle tavole (molto belle) sono state ridisegnate e presentano le varie specie di uccelli nel loro ambiente naturale. In aggiunta alle tavole degli uccelli vi sono raffigurate quelle delle uova, provenienti dalla collezione di Eugène Rey. Complessivamente sono illustrati 2500 esemplari di volatili (nelle varie stagioni e stadi di sviluppo) e come fa notare giustamente Casy Wood, si tratta della più vasta e dotta opera mai prodotta di ornitologia del centro - Europa. Da segnalare nel vol. IX, la tavola 25, raffigurante due specie di oche (Anser fabalis e Anser brachyrhynchus). La tavola non è cromolitografata, ma è un bellissimo acquarello coevo, con la firma sulla destra in basso del celebre pittore naturalista J.G. Keulemans.

        Love is Enough, or the Freeing of Pharamond: A Morality

      (Hammersmith: Kelmscott Press, 1897. Brown, Hannah. Quarto. 91pp. One of 300 copies on paper. Illustrated with two full-page woodcuts designed by Edward Burne-Jones and engraved by W. H. Hooper, and numerous ornamental initials and borders by Morris. The penultimate book of the Kelmscott Press, and one of only two printed with the color blue. Published one year after Morris' death and one year before the Press ceased operation, Love Is Enough is considered by many to be the greatest Kelmscott book, after the Chaucer. In a breathtaking designer binding by award-winning artist Hannah Brown of full calf with blind- and gold-tooling, colored leather onlays, and bright embroidery. The binder drew inspiration from the cycle of nature that features so prominently in the text, as well as from Morris's own designs for fabrics, borders, and wallpapers. In particular, she based the design on "Trellis," a wallpaper by Morris inspired by the Medieval-style gardens at Red House. Brown leather onlays, which were damped and pressed to create a wood-grain pattern, form the trellis itself, with gold-covered brass tacks at each intersection. Twisting around this framework are thorny vines, crowned with red roses, and careful embroidery lines the veins of the greenery. Charming blue beetles alight on the flowers and leaves, and metallic thread gives them just a touch of true-to-life shine. The focal point of the binding, however, are four densely embroidered birds flitting among the branches. Brown chose the four birds to represent the four seasons; for spring - a Goldfinch, summer - a Housemartin, autumn - a Serin and winter - a Brambling. Leaf-patterned paper is used for the doublures, and one cluster of leaves inside each cover has the veins cut away to reveal gold leaf beneath. The textblock is sewn onto stubs, and both the stubs and headbands are colored the same blue and red as the text initials. The book is housed in a teak wood box with a frosted perspex lid, so that the front cover of the book can be partially seen through it. A title label crosses the center of the box, decorated with leaves and a beetle-laden flower. The title is cut-away to reveal more gold leaf and is printed in the same font as in the original book. The box closes with a gold clasp. Brown was elected a Licentiate of Designer Bookbinders in 2009. Before becoming a bookbinder, she studied three-dimensional crafts, such as metalwork, textiles, and printmaking, which she incorporates into her binding designs. In 2014, she won the Mansfield Medal for Best Book in Competition in the Designer Bookbinders annual competition. Altogether a glorious binding on an important text.
