Catalogue Raisonné of Books Printed at the Curwen Press 1920-1923. With an introduction by Holbrook Jackson

London: The Medici Society Limited, 1924. 27 pp. + [9] sample pages, some with color illustrations. Spine faded, minor rubbing to edges. A very good copy. Finely bound by C. and C. McLeish in full reddish-brown morocco, ruled in gilt. Spine with raised bands and title in gilt. Top edge gilt, others uncut. Octavo. (Item ID: 15774)


Charles McLeish the elder (1859-1949) was a finisher for the Doves Press, and this binding is indeed reminiscent of the work of the Doves Bindery.
