Publisher's Binding

Gift book bound in red cloth, gilt stamped on all sides. Triple ruled borders with floral and geometric devices surround central classical stamping of cherub's face holding overflowing vase of flowers to front and harp to rear. All edges gilt.

Flyleaf upper right corner shows faint embossed stamp that may be a binder's mark (name partially illegible - may be "Ulman" - located in Boston).
