TENNYSON (Alfred, Lord).

In Memoriam.

Small 8vo. [160 x 100 x 17 mm]. [2]ff, 214pp. Bound in contemporary blue goatskin, the front cover tooled in gilt with a curved border formed by gouges, enclosing a panel of long leafy stems crossing at the head and foot and a central rectangular panel formed by dots, the rear cover tooled in gilt with a smaller central panel formed by dots and a leaf in the inner corners. The spine divided into six panels, lettered in gilt in the second and third and dated in roman numerals at the foot, the others with dots, the turn-ins with two leaves and dots in the corners, plain endleaves, gilt edges.
London: Macmillan and Co. Ltd., 1904.

Lightly foxed at the front. The binding is in very good condition. It has been signed in gilt on the rear lower turn-in with what appears to be a gate. This might indicate that the binder's name was "Gate" or "Gates". The forwarding is fairly competent, and the design is quite appealing, but the finishing, and especially the lettering, would suggest that the binder was an amateur.
