Volume III (December 1899) of this periodical. Table of contents, list of illustrations. Note on the facsimile binding by Cyril Davenport, who notes the Jacobean royal coat of arms, dating the format for this binding to the reign of Charles I, noting similarities to the bindings made for Charles's brother Prince Henry. Davenport also notes influences other than the Jacobean designs, noting the "introduction of lighter, stamps, borders, and curves designed somewhat in the manner of Le Gascon," a great French binder noted for the "marvellous delicacy" of his tooling. The royal arms is within a rectangular panel of corner pieces, floral arabesques, with small stamps of roses, thistles, and fleurs-de-lys. Ink stamp of Gloucestershire County Library on front pastedown (only library mark). Crack along bottom of front hinge. Half title and title very lightly foxed.
