London:: Printed for Longman, Hurst, Rees, Orme, and Brown. 1818. hardcover. 2 volumes. 12mo. ix, [3], 297; [iv], 292, [1] pp. Engraved half-. title, 6 engraved plates. Original full dark green gilt-stamped. straight-grained morocco, all edges gilt; rebacked preserving. original spine, rubbed. Very good. Provenance: Inscribed twice: “Anne. Rickman from Bertha Southey, May 1st, 1824.” Robert Southey, married. Edith Fricker, and amazingly had between 11 and 15 children. (genealogy is unclear), including Bertha (1810-post 1839), who. married her cousin Herbert Hill. Robert had corresponded with John. Rickman (1771-1840), who was the father of Anne Rickman (b.1808).. This two-volume set is embellished with a set of fore-edge paintings, each inscribed by the artist with the title of the paintings, “Elstow Church, Buckingham” – known as Elstow Abbey (built in c.1075 AD). The second volume sports a view of “West Gate, Canterbury.” The artist wrote the titles for both scenes on the (fore-edge) recto of the second-to-last leaf in each volume, in ink with capital letters. Painted in the 20th century. “Roderick the Last of the Goths is an 1814 epic poem composed by Robert Southey. The origins of the poem lie in Southey's wanting to write a poem describing Spain and the story of Rodrigo. Originally entitled "Pelayo, the Restorer of Spain," the poem was later retitled to reflect the change of emphasis within the story. It was completed after Southey witnessed Napoleon's actions in Europe, and Southey included his reactions against invading armies into the poem. The poem was successful, and multiple editions followed immediately after the first edition.” “The story describes fighting over the inheritance of the Spanish throne and how Roderick manages to take over. After Roderick rapes Florinda, daughter of his important ally Count Julian, Julian and others change their allegiance and aid the invading Moorish army. During a battle against the Moors, Roderick is wounded and escapes to start a new life. Eventually, Roderick travels across Spain before determining that he must return to rescue Pelayo, an heir to the Spanish throne who was held prisoner by the Moors. After freeing Pelayo, he meets Florinda who reveals that her rape was not Roderick's fault. The group allies itself with Count Pedro, and they build an army to wage war against the Moors. While fighting, Count Julian is assassinated by his own allies, and the Moorish army is broken and defeated. The poem ends with Roderick returning to the wilderness.” – Wikip. . 2 First Edition.

16 WEBER, Jeff. Portfolio of 25 Fore-edge Paintings.
Los Angeles: Jeff Weber Rare Books 2012 hardcover Oblong 4to. [26] pp. Color illustrations throughout. Black cloth, pictorial dust-jacket. NEW. 
Los Angeles:: Jeff Weber Rare Books. 2012. hardcover. Oblong 4to. [26] pp. Color illustrations throughout. Black cloth,. pictorial dust-jacket. NEW.. LIMITED EDITION of 50 copies. Essentially this is a supplement to the author’s 2010 book on fore-edge painting artists and binders which was issued in an edition of 1,000 copies. There was a special deluxe edition of 25 copies with paintings by three different artists. The three artists who contributed to the edition were Margaret Allport (Costa), Clare Brooksbank, and Martin Frost. These are the finest fore-edge artists in the world today and they have painted some remarkable scenes for the deluxe issue of Weber’s book. This portfolio reproduces the 25 paintings commissioned, in number order. Each artist was asked to paint something special and/or something relating to fore-edge paintings. The surface of the new book was large enough to allow for any scene to be painted. On one scene Frost painted a mirrored reflection of himself. On another scene Allport painted a scene of children climbing up a ladder to enter into a book-world, shelved as a library book, but in fact a fantasy world of imagination. She also painted an extraordinary scene of imps and elves coming into her world as an artist painting a fore-edge, buy she had fallen asleep and while dreaming they were making a mess of her paints and brushes! Brooksbank showed her extraordinary talent to paint Pre- Raphaelite scenes that were both romantic and inspirational, each taken from paintings. She also painted three erotic scenes, the author’s favorite being a scene of two Japanese lovers, fully clothed, lying beside each other, his hand directly up her kimono, and her hand outstretched holding a book that is fanned and showing a fore-edge painting! This portfolio celebrates the art made today by some highly talented artists. . .
