PLEASURES OF HOPE WITH OTHER POEMS
London: Printed for Longman, Hurst, Rees, Orme, and Brown, and for Stirling and Slade, Edinburgh, 1820. "A New Edition." 7 by 4 inches, bound in black crushed Morocco with extra gilt, top and bottom edges gilt, FORE-EDGE PAINTED with a view of Edinburgh taken from the southeast, from the hill beyond St. Anthony's Chapel (according to a lightly penciled note on verso of front free endpaper). Gilt inner dentelles. Edges partially gauffered. Obviously rebound, but I don't know by whom or when. What might (or might not) be the remnant of a tiny binder's ticket ...could have been a bookstore sticker, too. Four engravings, all beautiful, all drawn by R. Westall and engraved on steel by C. Heath. A very few spots of light foxing, and a flaw that looks as though it might have been caused by a ribbon marker "bleeding." Pages generally very good. The fore-edge painting is quite crisp and clear. The binding is bright and flawless. Lovely book.. Leather. Very Nearly Fine. Fore-edge Painting.
