About This Item

London: Bensley for Ackermann, 1870. Third Edition. Fine. William Blake. Quarto, (2), liv, 42 pp. With a portrait frontispiece, etched titlepage, typographical title page, dedication to the Queen, list of subscribers, biographical sketch of Blair, the poem and 11 plates with tissue guards. Gilt-stamped and blind-stamped and lettered cloth. Top edge slightly dust-toned and minor loss of cloth to the top edge of the boards. Endpapers starting to separate at the gutters. Barely perceptible water stain to the foot of the portrait frontispiece and slight waviness in the place on several subsequent leaves. Another barely perceptible waterstain on the last plate. All the other plates are unblemished. Previous owner's name in ink on the typographical title page (Gilbert Coleridge, 1882). Slight off-setting to the tissue guards, very clean throughout except for small marks at pp.xxxv, 2o, 21 & 37 and barely perceptible smugdes (thumb marks?) on pp 6 &13. This is the third quarto edition, printed from the same plates as the 1813 edition but actually issued by or for John Camden Hutten in 1870. Bentley, Blake Books, 435E.
