1870. Fore-edge painting of the Royal Family recreating. Historic Devices, Badges,War Cries by Mrs. Bury Palliser.


A fore-edge painting decorates the edge of this work on Historic Devices, Badges and War Cries. The work is interesting, discussing the meanings and giving examples of devices used throughout European history.

The fore-edge painting depicts the Royal Family, boarding a boat near a mansion on the Virginia Waters.


Charles Edward Davis, the Victorian era British architect and antiquarian, left his name on the front endpapers.
