Engraved armorial book plate of William Deane affixed to front pastedown. Light foxing to plates and first and last leaves, boards with very light shelfwear, else a very good copy. In addition to its extraordinary binding, this copy of Crabbe's poetical works features a unique fore-edge painting from the later nineteenth century. The Victorian painting -- which depicts four women dancing in a garden with a neoclassical balustrade, all within an oval frame set with pink orchids -- combines stylistic elements from both the Pre-Raphaelite school and the early Art Nouveau movement.
