§ No. 605 of 1480 copies, beautifully printed and illustrated. Bentley, BB, 2981 A: “scrupulously use[d] contemporary accounts of Blake which had not appeared in print before. This is a very full, accurate, and reliable work, and is sometimes called the ‘standard’ biography of Blake.” Often found as a companion volume to the 3-volume edition of the Works from the Nonesuch Press. Later editions, though edited and revised, omit most of the illustrations. Item #122711
