MOORE (Thomas).

Lalla Rookh, an Oriental Romance.

Title with woodcut illustration.

8vo. [178 x 115 x 20 mm]. xvi, 287, [1] pp. Contemporary binding of black felt over slightly bevelled boards, both covers embroidered in red thread with four leafy branches and a floral centrepiece and the smooth spine with four flowers. The turn-ins tooled with a gilt bud roll, red goatskin doublures with a border of a gilt double fillet, husk and ball roll and dotted roll, and inner panel of two fillets with tendrils formed by gouges and sprigs and flower-heads, ivory patterned silk free endleaves, gilt edges. Contained within the original black goatskin drop-over box, with flap sides and silver catch, lined with padded white silk.
London: [by Spottiswoodes and Shaw for] Longman, Brown, Green, and Longmans,1851

An extraordinary binding in very good condition, with just a few trivial marks or spots on the black felt. It is surprising that it is not signed, as it is certainly worthy of identification. 1851 was a year of great creativity.
