Hammersmith: The Doves Press, 1902. First edition thus. Bound by the Rose Bindery. A superb contemporary binding (unsigned, yet exactly matching a photo in The Rose Bindery's description of one of their bindings in the book "The Rose Bindery," Boston, 1925. Bound in sumptuous brown crushed morocco with interlocking multi-ruled fillets, stylized leaves and dots in an intricate and pleasing motif repeated on both covers. Spine in six panels with gilt compartments each with similar motifs as covers. Full morocco inner boards, each with matching brown and black morocco and elaborate coat-of arms with three bells and stars in the cetner and with four identical monograms: BHB. One of 325 copies printed on paper. The monogram BHB belongs to Harold Wilmerding Bell (1885-1947), the archaeologist and Sherlock Holmes collector. Two stamps (monogram and arms) are found on three of his books now in the Houghton Library at Harvard. A fine copy with slight rubbing to joints and very slight inner hinge wear.
