The Poetical Works. Edited by Sir Egerton Brydges. A new edition.
by [Fore-edge painting] MILTON, John (1608-1674).
London:: William Tegg & Co., 1848., 1848. 8vo. cvi, 767,  pp. With engraved plates after J. M. W. Turner; lacks frontispiece. Original blind- and gilt-stamped red morocco, all edges gilt; rubbed. Early embossed stamp of John Stoward, Liverpool, on title. Very good. WITH FORE-EDGE PAINTING OF ADAM AND EVE AND THE GARDEN OF EDEN AND THE EXPULSION. PAINTED BY DON NOBLE (unsigned), ca.1980s. Noble painted this scene as a side-by-side, wherein instead of the usual dividing line between the two scenes, he has employed an artistic device, a 'scene within a scene', or rather in this case, a scene between two scenes, essentially a squiggly path, with three figures at the background, seemingly en route. Very choice view that is very well painted by the artist. See: Weber, Jeff, Annotated Dictionary, pp. 214-6 [Noble fl. 1965-2000). [JWRB]
