The Life of Thomas Ken, Bishop of Bath and Wells. By a Layman. Second edition revised and enlarged. vol. 2, by John Lavicount Anderdon, 1855

We have a nice selection of books with fore-edge paintings. The painting of Wells, seen above, was added to this book in the 1940s or 1950s. In the coming months, we’ll feature some more examples from the collection.
