In this charming scene, two Victorian gentlemen wearing top hats are fishing from a skiff in a river, their oars acting as pilings. As is typical of these types of paintings, the artist is unknown. Fore-edge paintings are made by clamping a book in a vise and painting with watercolor on the fanned edge. Once completed, the book is returned to its natural position and the page ends are gilt, masking the painting. These rare and highly collectable books were first made in the mid-1600s, but examples with sporting and animal themes were primarily done in the 19th to early 20th centuries.
