    THE MIND OF SHAKESPEARE AS EXHIBITED IN HIS WORKS by (FORE-EDGE PAINTING - CURRIE, MISS C. B.). MORGAN, AARON AUGUSTUS

    London: Chapman and Hall, 1860. FIRST EDITION y. This selection of excerpts from Shakespeare's works purports to show us the poet's mind on hundreds of topics including anger, earthquakes, house-building, love, power, supererogation, and wives. Editor Aaron Augustus Morgan has selected passages from plays to illustrate Shakespeare's views on the subject in question. Whether these truly reveal the Bard's feelings on the matter or merely express the views required of the character quoted, this little work does provide us with a very useful concordance of Shakespeare quotes on a wide variety of topics. Our artist here, Miss C. B. Currie, is best known for her role in producing so-called "Cosway bindings," which featured miniatures painted by her on ivory. Currie collaborated with Riviere on most of the Cosway bindings, which numbered about 1,000 by the time she died in 1940. Currie's fore-edge paintings, by contrast, were far less numerous. In all, our painter produced just 131 known specimens. Called by Weber "a talented artist" whose paintings are "distinguished in more ways than one," Currie is the only fore-edge artist of any importance working before the present day whose paintings are signed and numbered. She particularly enjoyed decorating older books, like this one, and although the subjects of her paintings were rarely relevant to the contents of the books they adorn, that is not the case here. Her delicately rendered scene portrays the thatched Tudor cottage of Shakespeare's wife, Anne Hathaway, amid a tranquil landscape of trees. The painting is skillfully designed, with the two-story timbered house dominating the landscape with its simplicity and charm in a pastoral setting. The colors are soft pastel blues, greens, and grays, with small accents of yellow. The elegant binding by Riviere provides the perfect covering for this most desirable package.. 168 x 114 mm. (6 5/8 x 4 1/2"). xxiii, [i], 321, [1] pp. FIRST EDITION. Very attractive early 20th century maroon straight-grain morocco, gilt, by Riviere & Son (stamp-signed on verso of front free endpaper), covers with floral gilt frame flanked by triple fillets, center panel with blind-tooled floral border, raised bands, spine gilt in compartments with central patera within octagonal frame, densely gilt turn-ins, all edges gilt. WITH A FINELY EXECUTED FORE-EDGE PAINTING BY MISS C. B. CURRIE OF ANNE HATHAWAY'S COTTAGE. With a bound-in calligraphic leaf, stating that this is No. 25 of the books with fore-edge paintings done by Miss Currie, the leaf signed at the bottom by her. Corners a bit rubbed, a couple of trivial nicks in the painting (which is not richly colored), otherwise QUITE A FINE COPY, the text clean and fresh, the binding especially lustrous and without any significant wear.
