DOVER - HEATH, William.
Wm. Heath's Panorama of Dover] Sketched from Nature & Etched by William Heath.
Dover: Pubd. July 8th by Thomas Rigden, 66 Snargate St. [ 1836]. Hand coloured strip panorama measuring 191 x 1530 mm, on six sheets conjoined, folding into covers measuring 198 x 285 mm near contemporary purple cloth, upper cover lettered in gilt 'Rigden's Panoramic View of Dover'. The panorama shows Dover from the sea, extending from Shakespeare's Cliff to South Foreland. In the lower margin are the artist/etcher, Rigden's imprint, and 19 identifications. The panorama was marketed coloured or plain, 'in a neat case'. Both another copy we have seen and the Abbey copy record a dated title leaf with vignette; the binding in the present copy is clearly of the 1840s and as Rigden was still advertising the panorama as late as 1853 it is quite probable that this copy never included the dated title. Abbey, Life, 533. [Attributes: Hard Cover]
Bookseller: Pickering & Chatto [London, United Kingdom]
