A notable addition to AAS’s collection of printed cloth publisher’s bindings is this small format volume of love poetry, with sentiments keyed to the flowers which symbolize each. The binding—in fine, bright condition—consists of green cloth overprinted in black with a vivid checkerboard pattern, with added stamping in gilt and blind, gilt edges, and decorative printed endleaves of yellow glazed paper.
