About This Item

East Aurora: Roycroft Press, 1905. First edition. First edition. Bound in the publisher's scarce full modeled calf binding with striking design motifs on both covers, the front with bold stylized leaf patterns and ruling, and the rear with stippled and battered design, highly stylized petal devices, etc. Spine with modeled lettering. Probably 50 copies only, though McKenna neglects to describe this particular binding issue, even though he present the photograph of the "Modeled Leather Binding done in the leather shop," on page [53] in the center photograph groupings. The modeled leather process involves cutting, molding and hammering the leather to raise a the design, or a part of the design, in relief. The process dates back to 7th or 8th Century examples, and circa 10th Century Coptic bindings, but not taken up again until late 19th Century British bookbinding. Margin of front spine with wear, a remarkably well-preserved example of this fascinating and attractive binding process.
