David Lindsay: Familiar Bindings

Mark Valentine recently wrote at Wormwoodiana (direct URL here) about Mary Tyrwhitt Drake's novel Outgoing Tides, published by John Long in May 1924.  What struck me first is that the binding of the book is the same design, and same color of cloth, as that used on David Lindsay's novel Sphinx, published by John Long in December 1923.  Here are some scans of the binding of Sphinx:

I wonder whether there are other John Long publications from 1923-24 that have the same binding?
