Dryden_book_cover

A book of the poetry of John Dryden, famous for his allegory "The Hind and the Panther."

Notes from the photographer:
Cover of one of the non-circulating books at the Amity Library. Unfortunately, you can’t tell from the scan that this is embossed (well, pressed at least), but the gilt does come across well.
“The Poetical Works Of John Dryden”. No date (though inscription is dated 1885), pub: Belford, Clarke & Co., Chicago.
Photo taken on August 18, 2011.
