About This Item

The Gresham Publishing Company. London. 1901. FIRST EDITION. Four large 8vo volumes. (9.2 x 7.1 inches). Illustrated throughout with portraits and views. A very good set in the beautiful decorative Art Nouveau style red cloth bindings designed by Talwin Morris. Front boards with gilt, dark green and light green decorations. Spines with gilt lettering and decoration plus dark and light green blocking. Rear boards decorated in white and green. Bevelled edges to all boards. Plain grey endpapers. All edges gilt. Some rubbing to the edges and uniform fading to the cloth spines but the gilt and colours still strong and bright and this is a very attractive set in these beautiful bindings. --- This design, featuring attractive Glasgow Roses and Crowns, was exhibited at the influential Esposizione Internazionale d'Arte Decorativa Moderna in Turin in 1902.
