Binding, Fine- Ornate Inlaid Cover Designs] Fifty "Bab" Ballads
George Routledge, London 1878 - Superbly bound in rich full red morocco with a wonderful inlaid, gilt-tooled, and blind-stamped centerpiece to both the front and back covers comprising multiple flower heads between leaves and central leaf pattern in ochre, beige, dark green and red inlaid morocco, with all of negative space taken up with bold gilt stippling. Spine features inlaid, blind-stamped borders, as well as Doves-esque head and tail spine bands, gilt-ruled dentelles, gilt ruled lines along sides of boards, gray paper endsheets. Illustrations throughout by the Gilbert. Book measures 5.5" x 7.75." All edges gilt. Book with some brownstaining. A near fine example of an expertly crafted and beautifully designed Arts & Crafts binding by an unknown bookbinder, reminiscent of the work of Kelliegram.
