London, Longman, Brown, Green, and Longmans, 1852. 8vo (17.0 x 11.6 cm). Engraved title page, 284 pp. 19th-century Hayday binding of ruled green morocco. Spine with elaborate gilt patter and title, boards with gilt borders. Inner gilt dentelles. All edges gilt, fore edge with polychrome painting of a 19th century golf scene.

A rare little work (no copies on the internet), with a sweet fore edge painting. Sir Thomas Moore (1779-1852) is best known as the author of "Lalla Rookh", and "Irish melodies", and the song, "Last rose of summer". The book itself is worthwhile; with its unique fore edge painting, depicting a jolly golf scene, it is a real treasure. A very fine, unique copy.
