printed in Chiswick by C. Whittingham, College House; for Merridew and Son, Coventry; John Merridew, Warwick; and W. and T. Radclyffe, Birmingham Coventry : 1821 Elephant 4to (36cm); (x), (64), 108 pp; Engraved portrait frontispiece of Robert Dudley, Earl of Leicester, ‘drawn and engraved by H. Meyer from an original painting by Garrard in the possession of the Marquis of Salisbury’ and 18 engraved plates (mainly views and seals); half-title, with titlepage engraved with the bear and ragged staff motif long associated with Warwickshire; minor dust staining to the lower margin of the frontispiece, o/w contents very clean and fresh with original brown endpapers; all edges gilt. Spectacularly bound in dark green morocco (by Dawson & Lewis, of Dean Street, Soho) with central armorial crests to boards surrounded by highly ornate gilt decoration of Tudor-style swags and waves framed by three gilt lines; the inner dentelles on both boards are simply breathtaking, comprising complex patterns of seemingly English floral designs along a strong folkloric theme of the Tudor rose in full bloom at each corner; equally ornate gilt spine with ten raised bands arranged in pairs. Despite some very minor chips and signs of sympathetic repairs, this is by any standard a remarkable binding very much redolent of mid-century middle England.
