Inscribed by the printer Thomas James Cobden-Sanderson, who in 1900 had established the Doves Press at Hammersmith in partnership with Emery Walker. Over the next seventeen years, they published numerous works of great literature unadorned with any illustration or decoration (aside from the occasional hand painted initial), "just the words printed with care on handmade paper", an approach which later  became "a visual model for the reform of typography in Britain, Europe, and America" (ODNB). This appears to be an unrecorded binding variant with spacing to spine lettering slightly wider (see next lot for comparison).
