Garden City, New York: Doubleday, Page & Company (1915), 1916. Fogarty, Thomas. Hardcover. Duodecimo size, 395 pp. Near Fine. Item #16101703
A lovely decorated publisher's binding; we cannot find a signature of the binding designer, alas. The scene on the front board is of a city next to a bay, mountains in the distance and a white sky streaked with orange. Pictorial front endpaper depicts a sailing ship within a bay, a large rock in the foreground, mountains in the background; the back endpaper shows a horse and rider on a beach, looking out at a rocky shore. The pictorial cover is near fine, the colours used for the decoration very lightly rubbed, the decorated spine the same. There is a minimal amount of rubbing to the corners and the head and tail of the spine, else fine. The interior is bright and clean, free of prior owner markings.
