    Description

    [Fore-edge Painting]. Mrs. Henry Tighe. Psyche, with Other Poems. London: Printed for Longman, Hurst, Rees, Orme, and Brown, Paternoster-Row, 1811.

    Third edition. Octavo. 314 pages.

    Sumptuously bound in brown leather with gilt rules and designs on the boards and spine with gilt spine titles. All edges gilt. Housed in a full maroon leather pull-off case by Sangorski & Sutcliffe. Moderate shelf wear, including some abrading to the leather along the spine folds and ends. Internal contents bright and clean. Mild wear to the leather on the spine of the pull-off case. A very good copy.

    The fore-edge painting depicts a busy scene on a wide street in a Canterbury of yore. The line of shops and houses recedes into the background, guiding the eye to Canterbury Cathedral. A stunning fore-edge work.
