Unsigned binding design attributed to Sarah Wyman Whitman in black and gold on olive green cloth. A historical novel set in the middle ages about the love affair of a young dancing girl and Guy of Tours. A lovely copy of Whitman's simple design of a gold wild rose set against a background of black roses and petals within a black square panel reminiscent of a medieval book fitting. The titles in Mrs. Whitman's rustic, high-waisted sans serif font. Titles in gilt on spine. -- Austin Abbey Rare Books.
