||Designed by Owen Jones. Printed in gold on leaf 5: "/ Poetry by M A Bacon./ Drawn on stone by E.L. Bateman./ Owen Jones direxit./" Bevelled boards. Cream endpapers and pastedowns, decorated in gold with bronze and swirling wings. Printed on upper endpaper verso, at the tail: "/ Bound by Remnant Edmonds & Remnants./" Brown calf. The turn-ins are decorated in gold with the same "dog-tooth" pattern as for BL 1347.l.18. The bevels are blocked with the same curling stem and leaf decoration as for BL1347.l.18. The lower cover has two fillets blocked on its borders. An arch is formed by massed feathers blocked up the sides, to meet at the centre head. From the base, more massed feathers form a "peacock's fan tail" on the centre - all the decoration uses the contrast between blind and relief to harmonious effect. On the upper cover, the same two fillets are blocked on the borders, and the same arch is formed at the centre head by massed feathers. On the tail, more massed feathers are blocked in blind and in relief. A feathered wing is blocked on the left and on the right of the upper cover. On the centre, the title: "/ Winged/ thoughts/" is blocked in gothic, with the capitals "W" and "F" being in "bird-like" ornamental style. On the spine, feathers are blocked from the head to the tail in blind and in relief. Text copyright Edmund M B King.
