THE ANGLO SAXON REVIEW, A QUARTERLY MISCELLANY.
The original covers of the Anglo-Saxon Review Volume VII are a facsimile of gold-tooled binding by Cyril Davenport, who had taken from a binding that covered a folio edition of Soriano's Masses, which was dedicated to Pope Paul V. It shows the Borghese coat-of-arms, 'azure a dragon, or; in chief, or, an eagle crowned, displayed sable,' in the center of each of the boards surmounted by the papal triple tiara with the crossed keys of St. Peter. The coat-of-arms is enclosed in a framework of a curious assortment of ornamentations. A beautiful example of seventeenth-century Italian work, this work includes notes on the binding and other essays and a frontispiece with six illustrations. Foxing to front fore-edges and last pages is visible and the binding is rubbed at the edges and corners. The spine is darkened with rubbing to head and tail and the pages are uncut.
