    Mrs. [Frances] Trollope. The Barnabys in America; or, Adventures of the Widow Wedded. London: Henry Colburn, Publishers, 1843.

    First edition. Three octavo volumes. 321; 312; 306 pages.

    Beautiful full morocco binding by The Club Bindery with twin rules stamped in gilt on the boards and titles and decoration in six compartments between five raised bands on the spine. Gilt dentelle. Marbled endpapers. Top edge gilt. Beautiful internally and externally with only the slightest wear starting at the joints and spine ends. Near fine.

    This set bears the morocco and gilt ex libris of Robert Hoe III (1839-1909) on the front pastedown of each volume. Hoe was the first president of the Grolier Club and the man instrumental in importing a group of European book binders to start The Club Bindery in an effort to foster fine bookbinding in America. This set is certainly a fine example of the bindery's work.
