Binding, Fine- Captain Gladstone] Le Barbier de Seville
Edouard Pelletan, Paris 1903 - Beautifully bound by Captain Gladstone in full crushed dark green morocco with ornate and superbly executed gilt stamped covers and spine comprising stylized water lily blossom patterning on outside and a central ornate leaf, vine and blossom design on both covers, with Gladstone's usual wonderful wide dentelles also featuring the same water lily blossom motif with bold gold dot patterns, silver silk doublures, and peach colored facing sheets. Signed by Captain Gladstone in gilt front dentelle, "C.E.G.". Orne de 62 compositions de Daniel Vierge, one of 278 copies thus, extra illustrated, with a holograph sheet inserted denoting the 14 extra illustrations. t.e.g. Provenance: By descent within the family of the binder. slight fading mark to upper section of front board, else very fine. Gladstone bindings have become very much in demand, owing to an auction sale several years ago, and now seldom make it to the marketplace. Little is known about Gladstone, adding to the mystique.
