8vo. vii, 284 pp. Bound ca. 1890/1905 in full olive brown crushed morocco, gilt corner decorations, dentelles, a.e.g., marbled endleaves; p. 273/4 torn and mended. Alfred Trapnell bookplate. Very good. With a vertical fore-edge painting of a large urn or vase with a plant. The painting is not signed or dated. The view is suggestive of three urns that decorate the text of this volume, but it is not a copy of them. Alfred Trapnell bookplate, his library sold in NY ca. 1910 ["997" label]. Was the fore-edge painted before Trapnell bought the book or after? Alfred Trapnell was a famous collector of porcelains. From the Phoebe Easton collection of fore-edge paintings.
