The design reproduced on this cover is from the 1910 binding used for The Sensitive Plant and Early Poems, a collection of poems by Percy Bysshe Shelley. The binders of Riviere and Son, a London-based binding house, used leather and gilt to create a naturalistic representation of flowers, leaves, and butterflies on the book's doublure, the inside face of the cover board that is protected from wear and provides bookbinders with additional room for unleashing their creative skills. The sensitive plant, named after its reflex to fold its leaves when touched or shaken, is the focal point of the design’s composition, just as it is in Shelley’s poem.
