The Ring and the Book / Robert Browning
Kathleen V. Roberts Collection of Decorated Publishers' Bindings
Thomas Y. Crowell & Company
Norwood Press ; J.S. Cushing & Co. ; Berwick & Smith
Unsigned binding, likely Henry Thayer/Decorative Designers. Gold and off-white repeating pattern of an open book stamped in off-white within interlocking gold rings on vertically ribbed dark olive green cloth. Pattern repeated on spine. Top edge gilt.
Compare to cloth color of same title in light olive green cloth (2015.7.147). This one has a much stronger contrast to the stamping.
