~ Hand embroidered notebook.

[1914]

8vo., contemporary linen cloth over boards, exquisitely hand-embroidered in black thread with an floral decoration covering the entire book, exquisite hand printed patterned endpapers, all edges yellow. The pages within are all blank. In extraordinarily fine condition.

Immaculately bound and embroidered with a recognisably Bloomsbury aesthetic by Harriette Anne Morrell (1842-1924) and with a presentation inscription in pencil from her to her daughter-in-law Ottoline Morrell (1873-1938): “to Ottoline from H.A.M. July 1914”.
Harriette Morrell, the mother of Philip Morrell, was an accomplished artist and needleworker. After her death a memorial exhibition catalogue of her work was published by Basil Blackwell in 1925: ‘Harriette Anne Morrell: A Description of Herself and Some of Her Needlework and Painting”.
