green pebbled cloth over bevelled boards, with gilt lettering and decorations on the spine, a central ornamental cross embossed

Despite my dissection of this book's defects it has been one of my favorites as OBJECT. The beveled boards, the density,
and the texture of this tome make it a pleasure to hold in one hands.
