[DOVES BINDERY]. RUSKIN, John. ~ The Seven Lamps of Architecture.
Seventh edition in small form. 14 plates engraved by Cuff after John Ruskin’s drawings. Pp. xx, 440. 8vo., clearly bound by Doves Bindery but unsigned, original full very dark blue goatskin, spine with raised band and each panel with a gilt border and gilt lettering in one compartment and with the date 1898 at the bottom in Doves lettering, double gilt borders on turn-ins, all edges gilt. Expert repair to joints and some creasing to spine, slight offset from turnins to free endpapers, but otherwise a very handsome volume.
Reputedly the copy belonging to Cobden-Sanderson’s son Richard hence why it is in an unsigned Doves binding.
