    Three Fore-Edge Paintings in One Set

    [Fore-edge Painting]. [Horace Smith]. Brambletye House. London: Henry Colburn, 1826.

    Three twelvemo volumes. Each volume has a fore-edge painting depicting a scene from the novel. Volume I shows Hever Castle in Kent. Volume II depicts a busy scene at the Fish Market in Rotterdam. And Volume III offers a charming view of patrons sitting outside The Dolphin Inn at Battersea.

    Green morocco gilt extra with gilt spine titles and four raised bands. Moderate wear to spine ends and corners, but the three paintings are in excellent condition. Bookplate on front pastedown of Volume I.

    A rare chance for three complementary fore-edge paintings that directly pertain to the work on which they appear.
