The Course of Time: A Poem, in Ten Books
[by Ballantyne and Co. for] William Blackwood, and T. Cadell, Edinburgh 1828 - Fourth Edition. 8vo. [177 x 105 x 24 mm]. [2]ff, 394pp. Contemporary binding of straight-grained green goatskin, the covers with a border composed of a blind zig-zag roll and gilt fillets with arabesque ornaments at the corners. Smooth spine tooled in gilt with three connecting gilt compartments, lettered in the middle one, the other two filled with small arabesque ornaments, the edges of the boards and turn-ins tooled with a gilt roll, pink endleaves, gilt edges. (Endleaves discoloured). Occasional trivial spotting, but a very good copy in a most attractive binding, which could be Scottish. The decoration of the spine possibly alludes to an hour-glass. The poem was first published in 1827, and 24 or more editions were published by 1863. Early booksellers label "Sold By R. Griffin & Co. Hucheson Street. Glasgow".
