About this Item: Cadell, 1788. Hardcover. Condition: Very Good. The Triumphs of Temper, William Hayley 1788 (illustrated with plates by Stothard), mainly being notable for the fore-edge painting as shown in the photograph. Red leather binding (Burnham's of Northampton) with tooled detail. Binding tight, with rubbing to edges and bumping to corners. Elegant gift dedication to ffep dated 1796. A couple of seller marks on ffep. Some foxing to parts of the text and plates but not excessive. The main feature is the fore-edge painting of a rural scene that is revealed on the edges of the page block, when it is slightly fanned. Fanned fore-edge painting is a remarkable and highly skilled method of painting a scene on the edge of each page, rather than straight on to the page block. The page edges are then gilded on the top edge to 'hide' the image. The colours are a little faded but the image remains strong with the skill of the artist being easy to admire. More information available on request. (0516o4). Seller Inventory # 000445
