Funny dirty fore-edge painting of a Dr. Syntax type playing the violin while screwing a maid! The fore-edge surprise thus relates to the contents of the book. 12mo. 16 by 10 cm. Unpaginated. The fore-edge is unsigned, but it is well done -- one would not suspect that there is a painting when the book is closed. All edges are gilt. The binding itself has light wear but is a striking, handsome period binding. Full Straight Grained Morocco, Gilt Border Decoration. Bookseller Inventory # 004406
