A full leather binding with wooden boards and blind tooling. Wooden boards were slowly being replaced by pasteboards (similar to cardboard). This binding also has clasps, which were also going out of fashion. This binding is one demonstration of how hard it can be to date a binding with its old-style materials and methods. The spine has been rebacked and includes a new title label.
