NoteBook label of George Dunn (of Woolley Hall near Maidenhead) and his pencil note at the front dated January 1903; lot 1598 in the second portion of his sales at Sotheby's (2nd-6th February 1914), the University Library's copy of the catalogue annotated to record its purchase by the bookseller Ellis, at the price Â£2.16.0 (the catalogue also contains several slips of notes relating to lots bid on at the auction); bought by the Library from G. David (Cambridge bookseller) in June 1921, with what may be his price code 't/n/-' to the front pastedown.
Binding noteContemporary English blindstamped calf over bevelled wooden boards. A central panel divided diagonally by fillets, and a border around the outside. In each corner of the border is a round stamp containing a pelican (possibly Oldham, English blind-stamped bindings, no. 318), and within the border are diamond-shaped tools with foliage. The central panel contains triangular shaped tools (foliage) and four almost square tools on their points (again, foliage). Once clasped from front to rear boards, clasps now gone. A vellum document used to strengthen the binding, visible at the rear.
Decoration NoteDecoration:Early inscription to rear pastedown, and an early doodle of a face to the rear endpaper.
