Cedar Rapids, Iowa: The Torch Press, 1910. . 12mo, three-quarter vellum, navy cloth, t.e.g.; leather label on spin; marbled endpapers by Morrell of London In the Torch Series edited by Joseph Fort Newton. A rather restrained binding from the Morrell bindery of London, founded by W.T. Morrell in 1861 when he acquired the workshop of Charles Lewis at 17 Frith Street, Soho, London. MorrellÕs son W.J. Morrell took over the management in 1887 after his fatherÕs death, and subsequently brought his brother John Morrell into partnership. In 1891 an observer noted that W.J. & J. Morrell, at that time employing 50 people, preferred to bind all their work by hand and the gilding and the marbling of both paper and leathers was also done onsite. -- our thanks to the National Library of New Zealand for notes.
