Late 19th century matt dark green morocco by Ramage of London, Jansenist spine in compartments, fillets to interior, edges gilt. A small area slightly darker than the rest at head of upper cover, the slight difference in color possibly due to the leather itself. A superb copy perfectly bound, very fresh.
