This wonderful soft cloth “limp” binding is from a book of miscellaneous stories for children.  Borrowing from the iconography of Samuel Goodrich’s immensely popular “Peter Parley” books, the pictorial vignette features a group of children eagerly gathering around an elderly gentleman who is storytelling.  This charming vignette was designed by binding designer John Feely; the “JF” is apparent in the lower center of the picture.

Adopted in memory of Sue Allen by Steve Beare
