    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.

    The pre and post sales experience was wonderful and flawless. Heritage has the best in-house operation I have ever seen and their people are not only professional but fun to work with, especially Steve C.

    As for Heritage's online system… Yes the interface is more complex than what we are used to with SAN but what is behind that interface is amazing for sellers and buyers alike. It is real time and for a real serious auction buyer there is nothing better in the auction industry, bar none.
