London:: John Murray, 1818., 1818. 8vo. viii, 576 pp. Original full double gilt-ruled vellum, gilt embellished spine, olive-brown morocco spine label, all edges gilt, red endleaves. Fine copy. With a glorious fore-edge painting on the painted edge by the Dover painter, of "King's College Chapel Cambridge" and labeled in the artist's ink hand. The artist is known to have worked in the 1920s and 1930s in London, thus it is interesting to note that there are two notations with dates: a dated inscription in the back E.H.W. 25/3/31 [March 25, 1931] $ 85. - with a cost code showing B/-/- over B/H/E. Surely an indication that this was painted by March 1931 and offered for sale by an American bookseller for $ 85. The label (shown) for the painting also has a code: 116/1/24 which looks like a code/date - if a date then the year would be 1924. This is very much within this artist's time period of activity.
