032 H. C. Marillier
Dante Gabriel Rossetti: An Illustrated Memorial of His Art and Life

850.00

London: George Bell and Sons, 1899
270 pp., folio. Printed at the Chiswick Press, with 30 photogravure plates and 170 other illustrations.

Art nouveau binding designed by Laurence Housman, in full blue cloth with elaborate gilt decoration. Publisher’s list of illustrated books for Christmas 1899 laid in (single sheet in two colors, folded to make four pages).

Light wear, marking, and bumps to extremities of cloth (worn through in tiny spots at corners), but with gilt decoration on the whole quite bright; slight cock to spine; hinges starting but still essentially intact and strong; one weak opening between signatures toward the end; light, even age-toning to page edges; otherwise very good, and overall an attractive copy, much nicer than average.
