Blue cloth on boards, lettered and illustrated in gilt. 20 detailed monochrome drawings by the famous Scottish painter, Sir Joseph Noel Paton (1821-1901), installed as Queen's Limner in 1866 and knighted the following year. Top cover abraded along joint and corner tips worn through. All edges gilt. Bookplate carelessly removed. Previous owner's name and date in pencil (1875). NOTE: The initial "J" in the artist's name resembles a modern "F", which led me to confuse him with his second son, F. Noel Paton, who served as director of Commercial Intelligence to the Government of India. 69 pp., including versos of drawings. First published in 1763, this poem is remembered as the source of numerous popular quotes.
