Wide, attractive dentelles with geometric ruled boards and flourishes, original marbled endsheets. #25 of only 103 Copies, Printed on Japan Vellum, Signed by Hubbard. Wonderful title page (highlighted in gold), smaller illustrations, and initials throughout in seven colors on Ruisdael, designed by W. W. Denslow.

The binding (in a different color) is Illustration 29 of "Kinder."
