Book Description

First edition. Beautifully printed illuminations by Jones. 18 leaves (34 pages) chromolithographed in gold and colour. The boards have been covered in red leather, which follows, almost exactly, the original design. The book is stamped "Bound by Remnant, Edmonds and Remnant" to the first blank page, but we assume that this is a slightly later re-bind, rather than a variant binding (?) rebacked in morocco retaining much of original spine
Dealer Notes
The binding is a little rubbed and worn, particularly to the edges of the spine. Slight loss of surface red to some areas of the binding. The re-backing to the spine is slightly lifting in parts. The binding is reinforced with heavy duty archival tape to the front and rear hinge. There is intermittent foxing to the pages, and there is a faint water stain to the corner of the pages affecting the second half of the book. One leaf is loose, and half detached, but is hanging in there!
With armorial book plate of Aubrey G. Jamaica, (Aubrey George Spencer ) who was the first bishop of the Anglican Diocese of Newfoundland and Bermuda (1839–1843), and Bishop of Jamaica.
