Windsor by R. R. Holmes, 1908 - Riviere & Son Binding for The Army & Navy
With twenty captioned tissue guarded illustrations from paintings by George M. Henton. Half vellum with green cloth boards, gilt ruling to the edges of the vellum on both boards, gilt floral design and brown title label with gilt lettering to the spine, marbled endpapers, top edge gilt and rough page edges. With marks to the boards and spine as seen in photos this is a beautiful binding in need of some TLC. Foxing throughout, sometimes heavy, browning to the fore edge, rippling to pages and with plates that are generally clean but with a yellow mark to the edges, please see photos. An unusual binding as it was bound by Riviere & Son for The Army & Navy with their stamp to the verso of front endpaper.
