HOLMES, Oliver Wendell
NEAR FINE COPY IN EARLY LEATHERETTE BINDING
Published: Dent, 
Stock code: 43117
8vo., First Edition thus, with decorative title and pictorial endpapers; early series binding of maroon full leatherette, upper board blocked in gilt, gilt back, gilt top, radial corners, ribbon marker, a near fine copy.
The most elaborate of the four original binding styles, full leatherette was introduced at the commencement of the series and discontinued around 1919 (see Seymour pp.103). Due to the delicate nature of the material, really bright, crisp copies are now genuinely elusive. VERY SCARCE IN THIS CONDITION. EL 67; Seymour 517.0.
