Binding for The Quiver
Embossed blue publishers' cloth with elaborate gilt blocking
10¼ x 7 inches
An elaborate binding, unsigned, for the half-yearly issue of The Quiver. The luxurious design firmly locates the magazine in the domain of the leisure market – with no sense of the Evangelical fervour that motivated John Cassell’s original journal of 1861.
