Memoirs of George Selwyn and his Contemporaries, by John H. jesse

         L. C. Page,  1902

One of several titles in Jesse's 30-volume "Historical Memoirs" set, which were originally published in the 1840's.  [My thanks to the University of Cincinnati for this image.]   Although the cover is unsigned, the spine, under the call number label alas, is !!  You can see it here . The May, 1901 issue of The Book Buyer indicates that Sacker created this design, whose leaves and lettering recall other works. [See below]
