8vo. vii, 284 pp. Engravings throughout. Bound ca. 1890/1905 in full olive brown crushed morocco, gilt corner decorations, dentelles, a.e.g., marbled endleaves. Bookplates of Alfred Trapnell and Oscar Ehrhardt Lancaster (both owned fore-edge paintings). Very good. With a vertical fore-edge painting of a large urn or vase with a plant. The painting is not signed or dated. PROVENANCE: Alfred Trapnell bookplate, his library sold in NY ca. 1910 ["998" label]. The fore-edge was painted before Trapnell bought the book, as there was another ROGERS in the Phoebe Jane Easton collection that was a clear companion to this volume, also with Trapnell's bookplate. Alfred Trapnell was a famous collector of porcelains. [kmw]
