S-K 7414. An excellent account of a method of hand-binding where the design is pressed on the book from a single brass plate in one procedure. Ellenport writes about the historical development of this method and provides plates of the brass dies used by the Harcourt Bindery. Finely printed at the Heron Press. Minor wear to the leather spine label. Cloth covers sightly soiled.
