Oxford: Oxford University Press, 1844 [NT dated 1843].
Pearl 8vo. (6 1/2" tall). Unpaged. Printed in double columns. Sumptuously bound in full red velvet with patterned silk endpapers, a.e.g., gilt spine title, covers with very ornate polished brass frames with mounted brass leaf corner pieces, all edges ornately gauffered with decorative rules and scroll work, filigree brass clasp. Slight wear to velvet spine extremes, else near fine and bright. A rather stunning example of this genre of binding. Item #22552
