Publisher's Binding- Art Nouveau

Sarah Wyman Whitman

Top edge gilt. Bound in cream vellum-like cloth with Whitman's distinguished typography in the title above a gilt triangular art nouveau design. Enclosed within a double ruled gilt frame. Spine has darkened, a common problem with this choice of polished cream vellum-like cloth, a favorite of Whitman's.
