Description

The Riverside Press edition, designed by Bruce Rogers. Bound by Lorenz Schwartz at The Zahn Bindery, circa 1909. Bound in full olive green morocco, ornately gilt-tooled on both covers with a water, fish and lily pad design that follows the outside hinge along the spine. Twin pairs of hand-tooled, scaled fish are enveloped within multiple gilt tooled wavy lines of water and interspersed lily pads, which culminate in a much smaller gilt-tooled fish.
