Happy #foreedgefriday everyone. Enjoy the weekend!
Yesterday's Samuel Rogers posting conceals a fore-edge painting. The painting reflects verses within the book pertaining to Greenwich Hospital (in the 19th century, a hospital and home for retired sailors of the Royal Navy). Often fore-edge paintings are general and do not reflect the text.  In addition, J.M.W. Turner illustrated the same verses within the book (engraved after his sketch which you can see online). This is a well illustrated book, with many engravings after Turner and several other artists.

The fore-edge painting is nicely detailed, painted from a rare vantage point on the Hospital.  Several people are recreating along the banks of the Thames and on the river you can see a hospital ship flying a white flag with red cross (medic flag). #foreedgefriday #foreedgepainting #jmwturner #greenwichhospital #thames #london #navy #naval #ships

1834 Poems of Samuel Rogers. An October binding in my opinion; the corners appear like cobwebs and the gilt contrasts with the aging black leather to create an effect not unlike the design of Halloween decorations.

The work is illustrated wonderfully with many illustrations after sketches by J.M.W. Turner.

The work is also decorated with a fore-edge painting, which I'll share tomorrow :) #October #Halloween #pagefrights #gothic #cobwebs #finebinding #gilt #alledgesgilt #foreedgepainting #samuelrogers #jmwturner #turner #art #illustration #vintage #old #rare #beautiful #bookbinding

This is a fore-edge painting. They're on thousands of old books but the fantastic thing is you'd never know they were there unless you fan the pages a little... spread the pages of your old books, you never know! Late C19th and early C20th books, even otherwise-non-descript items, are where you'll be most likely to find a fore-edge painting.

Fore-edge painting (a view of Oxford) on an 1801 Book of Common Prayer we added to our stock this week. A handsome book, with a straight-grain Morocco leather binding. Ownership inscription of Edward Edwards, likely the notable 19th century Librarian.

Have you heard of "Fore-Edge Painting"? It's a scene painted on the edges of a book so that it is only seen when the pages are fanned as they are here. This was created in 1832! What patience this took. #foreedgepainting #antique #antiquebook #painting #ephemera #antiquarianbooks #collectibles #bookbinding #booksellers #books #paintedscene #rectoverso

Well hello, ladies! 
I'm not going to lie, Dante is coming across as a bit of a creeper in this #foreedgepainting, watching Beatrice and her lady friends. The painting is a reproduction of Henry Holiday's painting Dante and Beatrice, so the good people at Fazakerley are only partially to blame for this :D Appropriately enough the image appears on the foreedge on an 1854 edition of Dante's Divine comedy.

Estaré compartiendo todo los recuerdos y las cosas nuevas que vayan saliendo.

Este es mi primer recuerdo, hace ya tres años tuve la oportunidad de poder tocar y apreciar un libro con pinturas en sus bordes, que, al torcer, aparecían y al dejarlo quieto se escondían. Yo me enamore de la idea y deseaba hacer uno similar. Leí muchas cosas sobre las técnicas para hacerlo y sus historias. Entonces intente hacer uno, pero como fue mi primer intento no salió muy bien. Hubo muchos problemas en el proceso y solo pude lograr hacer la pintura. Aun así, me pareció muy bonita experiencia y aun quiero pasar bastante tiempo con esta idea de dejar huellas en los bordes de los libros de todos los demás. 
Este librito ahora yo lo utilizo como recetario de cocina y también de otras cosas como recetas para productos de higiene personal. Mi librito ya está bastante gastado y es porque lo he traído por todos lados apuntando cosas. 
Si quieren compartirme una rica receta de platillos caseros o cualquier receta milagrosa, pásenla, pásenla, no sean envidiosos jijijijiji ❤ 
Las dimensiones son: 16.51 cm. x 10.16 cm x 5.08 cm, por si tenían curiosidad... #libros #bookart #acuarela #recuerdos #perrito #azulejos #acuarela #watercolor #bookarts #foreedgepainting

Sharing about this fun historical rebind (D&C, 1876), and how I created a graphite fore-edge treatment concealing the fore-painting I painted. I think you'll enjoy the video too! (Tap link in bio.)

#foreedgefriday is great for all kinds of reasons. For one thing, when the fancy or interesting edges of books show up, that means that the workweek is almost over (hooray!). For another thing, it showcases an often overlooked part of the book. Sure, everyone admires the spine, but how often do people stop and look at the edges of the text block? 
Painted edges like the ones that grace this 1756 Book of Hours in Latin and Italian show that there was a whole extra canvas that binders could practice their skills upon. The binding (and, I would imagine, the edges) are roughly contemporaneous Italian workmanship.

The Book of Psalms: With a Fore-Edge Painting of The Canterbury Cathedral..
$975.00

Beautiful and skillfully executed fore-edge painting of The Canterbury #Cathedral from St. Stephens Road with a small of sheep grazing in the foreground. Octavo, full pebbled brown morocco, gilt titles and tooling to the spine, front and rear panels, gilt inlay, inner dentelles, all edges gilt. In near fine condition.

The earliest fore-edge paintings date possibly as far back as the 10th century; these earliest paintings were symbolic designs. Early English fore-edge paintings, believed to date to the 14th century, presented heraldic designs in gold and other colors. The first known example of a disappearing fore-edge painting (where the painting is not visible when the book is closed) dates from 1649. The earliest signed and dated fore-edge painting dates to 1653: a family coat of arms painted on a 1651 Bible. Around 1750, the subject matter of fore-edge paintings changed from simply decorative or heraldic designs to landscapes, portraits and religious scenes, usually painted in full color. Modern fore-edge painted scenes have a lot more variation as they can depict numerous subjects not found on earlier specimens. These include scenes that are erotic, or they might involve scenes from novels (like Jules Verne, Sherlock Holmes or Dickens, etc.). In many cases, the chosen scene will depict a subject related to the book, but in other cases it did not. In one instance, the same New Brunswick landscape was applied to both a #Bible and to a collection of poetry and plays. The choice of scenes is made by either the artist, bookseller or owner, thus the variety is wide. The technique was popularized in the 18th century by John Brindley (1732-1756), publisher and bookbinder to the prince of Wales and Edwards of Halifax, a distinguished family of bookbinders and booksellers. The majority of extant examples of #fore-edge painting date to the late 19th and early 20th century on reproductions of #books originally published in the early 19th century.

Una antigua tecnología de llamada Fore Edge Painting.

La Fore Edge Painting fue una técnica de relieve en los cantos de los libros, muy popular durante el siglo XVII, pero que actualmente es casi inexistente.

Paisajes, retratos o escenas religiosas… obras de arte ocultas en el canto de un libro cuyo origen, probablemente se remonte al siglo X.

Fore-edge painting by Martin Frost on Alice in Wonderland. That's 2 sides of the same book! Attended his talk in Chichester back then (gosh almost 2 years since!). Basically, the text block is fanned out such that only about 1mm of each page shows, and then you start painting! Usually with watercolours... Much like hidden treasures~ so cool right?! #foreedgepainting #martinfrost #chichister #aliceinwonderland #throwback #westsussex

This rainy grey day calls for a beautiful #shelfie pick me up! You've all seen these books before–about every Friday for a year! These are some of the spines from our #foreedgepainting collection! With all of that beautiful gilt detail, it's high time their spines were shown off too! #rarebooks #specialcollections #beautifulbooks #bookstagram #oldbooks
Today's fun find: a 1904 Macmillan edition of Fanny Burney's Evelina, with elaborate gilt and what looks like an amateur fore edge painting. #specialcollections #foreedgepainting #rarebooks #bookdesign #furman #lovemyful
As we continue to look at historical bookbinding, today we spotlight fore edge paintings. A scene is painted on the fore edge of a book with the edges fanned out so that the painting is not visible with the book closed.

A wonderful fore edge painting of Windsor Castle decorates this beautiful 1824 first edition biography of Cardinal Wolsey & His Times in our ebay store.  The book seller ticket, publisher and printer paint an interesting picture of early 19th century book sales.

About The Printer “Thomas Davison (1794 - 1826) was a British radical journalist and printer-publisher of a series of journals.  Known for his republican and Deist views, Davison actively supported Richard Carlile in his battle with the British establishment of the time, which resulted in Carlile's imprisonment in 1819.” “Davison's publication of material critical of the Bible in the Deist's Magazine resulted in his own prosecution. Found guilty of blasphemy after his trial in 1820, Davison was fined £100 and imprisoned for two years. Reduced to poverty in his last years, he eked out a living as a bookseller following his release in 1822.” (Wikipedia)

About the Ticketed Bookseller “Thomas Ingalton Senior’s bookshop, at the Thames end of Eton High Street, was also successful.  Thomas was not only a bookseller but a printer, bookbinder and publisher.  He supplied stationary and art materials and sold lottery tickets. He probably sold William Ingalton’s paintings (his cousin).” (etonwickhistory.co.uk/p/notesfor-biography-on-william-ingalton.html)

About the Publisher “Print and publisher William Sherwood first worked for Symonds in Paternoster Row, taking over the business with Neely and Jones in 1806” (britishmuseum.org)

About Paternaster Row “The area was a centre of the London publishing trade, with booksellers operating from the street. In 1819 Paternoster Row was described as "almost synonymous" with the book trade. The street was devastated by aerial bombardment during the Blitz of World War II, suffering particularly heavy damage in the night raid of 29–30 December 1940, later characterized as the Second Great Fire of London, during which an estimated 5 million books were burned. The street was replaced with Paternoster Square although a City of London road sign remains in the square near where Paternoster Row once stood.” (Wikipedia)

Today, a special post from Allen County Public Library's Fine Books Room, a locked and secure room located in the lower lever of the ACPL, which is the home to rare and expensive materials that the library has acquired since its opening in 1895. 
Pictured: An image of double fore-edge painting (on both sides of the page margin) on "The Chace, the Turf, and the Road" / by Nimrod (with numerous illustrations; new edition; London : John Murray, 1850). @acpl_insta

A fore edge painting example decorates this 1819 edition of William Falconer's The Shipwreck.  Rare that the painting is a signed example, with the initials L.R. (or L.H.). The book also includes five illustrations executed by the royal artist Richard Westall, who was Queen Victoria's artistic tutor (and sometimes painter).
.
The author of the book, "William Falconer (21 February 1732 – December 1769), was a Scottish epic poet concerned mainly with life at sea. He also compiled a dictionary of marine matters. Falconer was the son of a barber in Edinburgh, where he was born, became a sailor, and was thus thoroughly competent to describe the management of the storm-tossed vessel, the career and fate of which are described in his poem, The Shipwreck. The work gained for him the patronage of the Duke of York, through whose influence he obtained the position of purser on various warships. Falconer was purser on the frigate Aurora when it was lost after rounding the Cape of Good Hope on a voyage when it left from London on 20 September 1769." - Wikipedia

My lovely wife @kellie.cox320 finally helped me get a decent fore edge painting photo, they are about impossible to shoot by yourself.

Posting this a little early because I'm spendin all day tomorrow working on the Locost (fake Lotus Seven) and Insta is gettin a break ha.

Painting on the fore-edge of "Les enfants de l'amour" by Eugene Sue of a lakeside scene of a walled town with boats resting on the shore. Artist unknown. #foreedgefriday #foreedgepainting #specialcollections #librariesofinstagram #rarebooks
I ran across this forgotten fore edge painting at the bookstore the other day  and immediately set to making a box. The painting is of blenheim palace.

🖼A fore-edge painting is a technique of painting on the edges of the pages of a book. The artwork can only be seen when the pages are fanned, as seen in the animation below. When the book is closed, you don't see the image 🖼because it is hidden by the gilding (i.e., the gold leaf applied to the edges of the page). #foreedgepainting #foreedge #art #art🎨 #painting #history #bookstagram #book #books #learning #educateyourself #education
🍀🍀🍀One more for luck! Irish Melodies by Thomas Moore with a sweet fore-edge painting of Castlehale, County Kilkenny, Ireland. #books #bookworm #bookstagram #rarebooks #oldbooks #antiquarianbooks #bookseller #stpatricksday #irishmelodies #greenbooks #castlehale #countykilkenny #foreedgepainting
Eit hemmeleg motiv. Ei ekstra overrasking. Skjult bak den gylne overflata kjem Stavanger til syne med flotte detaljar og fargar når ein bøyer alle sidene på ein bestemt måte. Teknikken kallast «snittmåleri» og var populær frå ca. 1750 og utover til tidleg på 1900-talet. Motiva var mellom anna landskap, portrett og religiøse scener.⠀
⠀⠀
Frå boka «The Epicurean: A tale» av Thomas Moore frå 1827.⠀

At the New York Book Fair? Stop by @piragesrarebooks in booth E1; they're my local antiquarian book shop and I highly recommend them.  I stopped by their store this week and, as always, they welcomed my taking of pictures for Instagram.
. 
On their shelves, among many treasures, I found this Book of Common Prayer from 1823, with a fore-edge painting of a view of Lincoln from the River Witham.  I knew to look for a fore-edge painting on this work because I watched Phil Pirages' videos on Youtube and learned that religious works from this period often have fore-edge paintings as a way to set themselves apart from their competition. .
If you haven't watched the Youtube videos... well, I guess that's my second Pirages recommendation in one post.  Check em' out, regardless of your bookish knowledge I'll bet there's good stuff there.  I occasionally re-watch them and always learn something.
