Embossed bindings in the Loring collection. Many of these, you can see on the spine, are from A. Mame and Company, a 19th century publisher, printer and bookbinding establishment in Tours, France. 

Mame made many such bindings, called “chocolate box” style by some historians. They featured embossing on paper of multiple colors with a window in the covers through which showed a lithograph, often of a young lady or an outdoor scene, which may or may not relate to the contents.
