With 19 fine, tissue-guarded colour plates throughout, illuminated with silver and gold, and one illustrated title page. First letter of each verse decorated in rich orange and black. Handsomely bound in quarter vellum over pale blue paper-covered boards, red morocco label to spine, lettered and bordered in gilt, edges untrimmed.
