Ruskin, John, 1819-1900
This work was bound by Aemelia Ars of Bologna in brown calf, elaborately blind tooled in a floral design. The title appears on the center of the front cover and the author's name on the back, each is outlined by gold fillets. A gold dentelle on calf surrounds the brown watered silk doublure, with matching silk lining. The edges are red; two metal clasps hold the binding closed.
