The book: "A stunning 1904 first edition of ""Green Mansions: A Romance of the Tropical Forest"" by W.H. Hudson, published by Duckworth & Co., London. This early environmental novel is exquisitely bound by Bayntun-Riviere, renowned for their fine craftsmanship. The novel is set in the lush forests of South America and blends romance, adventure, and mysticism with a deep appreciation for nature and its preservation.

There, he discovers Rima, a mysterious and ethereal girl living in harmony with nature. The novel is a poignant exploration of the relationship between humans and the natural world, conveying a message about the importance of environmental conservation."

The author: W.H. Hudson (1841–1922) was an author, naturalist, and ornithologist. Born in Argentina, Hudson's deep love for the natural world is evident in his writings. "Green Mansions" is one of his best-known works, revered for its lyrical prose and its early environmentalist message, showcasing Hudson's ahead-of-his-time awareness of the need to protect the natural environment.

The binder: George Bayntun was born in 1873 in Bath, England. After an apprenticeship, he began his own bookbinding business in Bath in 1894, binding books by hand with great craftsmanship. Although many binders were using machines in their process, Bayntun refused to use modern techniques.
