This filigreed journal design was originally created in 1675 to hold Richard Allestree's The Government of the Tongue. Crafted by the Queens' Binder "A," the balance of open space and intricate elements makes it a shining jewel of the period. The Queens' Binder was a name given to a small group of English craftsmen during the era. While the name of the binder called "A" is not known, there is no doubt as to the regency of this gilt binding. 208pp  h140mm  x  w95mm  x s12mm
