About This Item

London:: Longman, Rees, Orme, Brown, Green, and Longman, 1833., 1833. Small 8vo. 264 pp. Engraved half-title, 19 engraved plates. Original full dark green blind- and gilt-stamped morocco, a.e.g.; neatly rebacked, preserving original endleaves; rubbed. Early ownership signature on title of [-] Baldwin; bookseller's label of G.A. Poynder, Reading. [From the collection of Phoebe Jane Easton]. Very good. WITH A FORE_EDGE PAINTING of an English countryside scene, showing two monuments [including a cathedral] by "Stevens", a painter who worked after WWII and was very prolific. Edited by Letitia Elizabeth Landon (1802-1838). Fore-edge painting PROVENANCE: Yale & Brown Booksellers, Pasadena, CA [with their dated invoice of September 15, 1962] – W.R. Moran, La Cañada (purchased 16 July 1962 with fore-edge painting named on the receipt) – gifted to William ["Bill"] & Phoebe Jane Easton in 1962. The important aspect of this provenance is that within it is a proof that this book was painted on before July 1962. Bill Easton (ca.1916-1996), paleontologist, was a professor of geological sciences at USC, specializing in fossil corals. "Dr. Easton was an outstanding gentleman in the truest sense of the word," said paleobiologist David J. Bottjer.
