Exquisitely bound by Alfred de Sauty in deep blue crushed morocco with elaborate and boldly impressed gilt floral and leaf pattern work on both covers depicting burgeoning Tudor rose blossoms at the end of swirling stems and triple heart leaf motifs, as well as ornamental circles. The spine is also similarly gilt in bold interlocking stem an leaf pattern on four of the six panels, the remaining two gilt lettering. The date 1830 at bottom. Side edges, including top and bottom of spine, with single gilt filet ruling. Understated dentelles on front and back inside covers, with "de Sauty" at the bottom of the front dentelle. Frontispiece, title, and five superb etched plates by George Cruikshank. An utterly fine copy with absolutely no signs of wear to the binding. Alfred de Sauty (1870-1949) produced tooled bindings of exceptional quality and workmanship in London from approximately 1898 to 1923, and in Chicago from 1923 to 1935. His finest work is thought to be have been accomplished between 1905 and 1914, quite possibly when this binding was executed. A truly wonderful example of the skill of this wonderful bookbinder.
