SOTHEBY, WILKINSON E HODGE. BINDINGS BY THE GUILD OF WOMEN-BINDERS AND THE

HAMPSTEAD BINDERY.

1550 (This collection of modern bindings recalls the sale which took place on December 10th last year (see BOOKPRICES CURRENT, vol. xv., p. 180), when a hundred specimens from the work-rooms of the same institutions realised a total sum of £720 10$. 6d. On this occasion the catalogue contained 122 entries, and the total amount realised was £1,293 6s. 6d. The largest sum (£310) was obtained for a quite modern manuscript on vellum-“The Office of the Holy Eucharist”—but in this case the 60 folio pages that comprised it were decorated throughout with original designs, illuminated in gold and colours, based on a study of the work of the 13th and 14th centuries. The binding was mediaeval morocco, embossed with a design specially made for it by the artist himself, who is stated to have been occupied during a period of ten years in the execution of the manuscript. One of the finest bindings in the collection showed a design of purple and blue pansies, with ornate decorations of red berries and leafy scrollwork. It encased a Japan vellum copy of Keats' Poems, 1897, and was the work of P. A. Savoldelli, of the Hampstead Bindery (£22). A full report of this sale appeared in the Times and the Morning Post of December 17th, and to these reference must be made for any further information that may be required.--Ed.]
