Golden Gleanings. Being a Selection from the Poets Devotional & Moral.

8vo. [172 x 114 x 28 mm]. viii, 307 pp. Contemporary binding of green goatskin, the cover tooled in gilt with a wide border composed of dog-tooth, dotted and solid fillets, and repeated impressions of various fleurons and other small tools. The spine divided into six panels with gilt compatments, lettered in the second, the others tooled with a vase of flowers and volutes, the edges of the boards tooled with a dotted fillet, the turn-ins with a dog-tooth and solid fillets, brown endleaves, gilt edges. (Small scuff mark at the head of the upper cover).
London: [by R. & R. Clark for] Whittaker & Co., 1863.

A few of the tools, including the vases on the spine, are very slightly misaligned but the tooling is sharp and bright. It is probably a provincial binding and is a pleasure to hold.

Printed label of "James Dorman / Royal Victoria Library / St. Leonards on Sea" and school prize label of Quebec House, St. Leonards-on-Sea, awarded to Wilfrid Wood Wells for Total Marks in 1894.
