Prize binding. Life and Times of Girolamo Savonarola by Professor Villari.

Sorry, this item has sold.

A handsome prize binding, with a gilt armorial on the front board of the green morocco binding, given to H.H. Kelley in 1905 by the Bishop Vesey's Grammar School in Sutton Coldfield. The Life and Times of Girolamo Sovonarola. It is copyrighted 1888, but it seems to me it may be some sort of facsimile of that edition, but at the latest it was printed before 1905.
