Note: #22 of 100, Illumined by Lily Ess
Binding by Louis Kinder


 This book measures 7 1/2" x 5 1/4" and has 46 pages. The text body is set in Bruce Roman and 100 copies were printed on Japan Vellum and of those, this is #22. The suede edition was printed on Roycroft handmade watermarked paper. McKenna states that the bindings for this edition were 3/4 Levant or suede. The full Levant binding above is not listed in McKenna. I have three examples of full Levant bindings of this book on the site. The full Levant veined calf binding shown above is a variant not listed in McKenna.
