Book Description Edgar Backus, Leicester, 1931. Hardcover. Book Condition: Poor. Dust Jacket Condition: Poor. 1st Edition. 4to - over 9¾ - 12" tall. A beautifully illustrated book by Major Paget, his subject being the celebrated artist, John Ferneley, and "his" Melton Mowbray where Ferneley eventually settled and made his base, both painting and personal. Melton at the time was becoming an important fox hunting centre, and painting various hunting and sporting scenes became Ferneley's specialisation. His account books from 1807 to 1860 are re-presented in this work, the entries showing his earnings from a huge number of paintings and sketches. A well-known and wonderful biography of the man and his time. DEDICATED on front free end paper "Rosemary Butler, From Jack, Germaine and Anne Paget, October 21st 1937". Sadly, the book is in quite poor condition: the green covers are soiled and worn at edges, and esp on spine. The gilt lettering is intact but there is soiling or fading on the spine with fraying of and splitting in the outer linen. There is a hole (ca 5 X 3mm) in the outer layer on rear cover. Internally, the book is fair: several pages inclined to foxing, paper protecting frontispiece browned, end papers very slightly grubby, some other odd minor marks. Ink marks on top edge of pages. Jacket now in two pieces: both foxed, torn, marked, creased, damaged. Picture on front cover also marked and edges worn away. Sadly, book and jacket overall poor condition at best. PLEASE NOTE ¿ This is a heavy book (in excess of 1kg when packed) but postage/shipping within UK is included in the indicated pricing. For an order outside of UK, however, we will be asking for an additional contribution towards shipping costs. Bookseller Inventory # KIL03
