Leather bound mid-19th century American decorative cathedral book binding.
Lovely example, leather remains clean & supple. Raised relief pattern, boards slightly bowed as typical for this style of binding.
Short video captures condition much better than words. Please watch prior to purchase to ensure a clear understanding of the lot. Nicer lot than typical for the type.
