THE BINDING IS SIGNED ON FRONT FREE ENDPAPER VERSOS. Henry Stamper (1802?-1887), master bookbinder, was an associate of Bedford, Lewis, Clarke and Morrell; indeed he may have succeeded Bedford as manager of the Lewis bindery, and his later business passed to Morrell. Examples of his work are held by the Folger Shakespeare Library and the Bodleian. [We are indebted to Laurence Worms for the foregoing information.]
