A Fence Of Trust By Mary Frances Butts Vintage Leather Bound Christian Poetry
This is a beautiful vintage edition of a wonderful book of inspirational poetry.
Book Condition/Description: Softcover, leather or suede bound with the title and a floral design stamped in the leather with gold lettering on the title. The binding is done by hand through the pages in leather with the binding tied in a small knot on the front.
The pages are printed in black ink, the chapters have decorated initials in red ink. A uniquely printed pamphlet for the time.
The insides of the book have a copper colored foil lining with a wavy design in relief. Copper papery lining has come slightly lose from the leather covers, there are small rips and tears in the paper.
This lovely edition does not have a date or page numbers. It appears older, and handmade with care. I have seen editions of this book with paper covers, but not with these leather covers. The poetry, the art of the printer and the incredible leatherwork make this a beautiful work of art worthy of any collector of fine books.
