The Ingoldsby Legends, Illustrated by Rackham, Signed Riviere Binding

Robert Riviere founded his bindery in Bath in 1829, and George Bayntun followed his example in 1894. Bayntun-Riviere is now the last of the great Victorian trade binderies still in family ownership and prides itself on continuing to bind entirely by hand. We still operate an apprenticeship scheme - our latest recruit, Andrew Van Zanten, has been with us since 2001.

Cosway Bindings are traditional leather bindings are adorned with beautifully inset miniature portraits in the covers. The bindings are named for the portrait painter Richard Cosway. This copy of Evangeline by Longfellow – is an extraordinarily gorgeous example with portraits set into the back cover as well as the front. For sale at the tidy sum of $91,800, this one is a smidge out of my price range, but I sure what love to hold it in my hands and look through it.
