Bookbinder Leighton, Son & Hodge of London
Ownership mark
Reference Ball, Douglas. Victorian publishers’ bindings. London, Library Association, 1985, p. 181.
Notes The design is not signed. London: Darton & Co., Holborn Hill, [1852]. 106x168x14mm. 88+88p. 1 plate. Light blue endpapers and pastedowns. Binder's ticket on lower pastedown: "/ Leighton/ Son &/ Hodge,/ Shoe Lane/ London./" [Ball no. 53A.] Blue ripple vertical-grain cloth. Both covers identically blocked, in blind on the lower, in silver on the upper. Two fillets are blocked on the borders. Elaborate strap work and lattice work is blocked on each corner, and also on the centre sides. Curling stems form a "figure of eight" shape, from the centre head to the centre tail. From this a tracery of thin stems, leaves and of flowers fills the spaces inside and around the figure of eight. The spine is blocked (possibly in silver, now faded.) The words: "/ Useful knowledge for children/ " are blocked in blind along the spine, within an extended cartouche, with small decoration blocked at each end, at the head and the tail. [This upper cover design has the appearance of a Leighton design.] Text copyright Edmund M B King.
