The Lady of the Lake, a Poem

Edinburgh: John Ballantyne; London: Longman, Hurst, Rees, Orme, and Brown, and W. Miller, 1810. 8vo.(10), 433 pp. Half-title. Somewhat later black straight-grain morocco, gilt, and marbled endpapers, gilt title on spine (dull), a.e.g.; some scattered foxing and spots in margins of text; cracking along the spine and its extremities, and splitting along the rear leather joint and corresponding hinge. Eighth edition. The gilt edges conceal a contemporary double fore-edge painting, each with an ink manuscript identification at the edge of the endpaper just above the painting: (1) "Rodmarton Place, Gloucestershire," the country house and its outbuilding sitting amidst a grove of trees, and (2) "Thornbury Castle, Gloucestershire," the manor, several employees, and some farm animals also amidst a grove of trees. "Ainderby Teeple," possibly the binder, blindstamped in the upper cover. Item #50698
