Jerusalem. The Emanation of the Giant Albion.

1974. London: Trianon Press, 1974.

Folio, 25 color plates, 8 proofs, and commentary at the end. Original quarter brown morocco, slipcase, fine.

§ Limited to 500 copies, of which this is No. 289. Jerusalem is the longest of Blake's prophetic books and tells of the fall of Albion, Blake's embodiment of man, or the Western World. This is the facsimile of Lord Cunliffe’s copy and Kerrison Preston’s proofs; the coloring differs markedly from the Stirling copy also published in facsimile by Trianon. “The long list of color facsimiles produced by the Trianon Press under Arnold Fawcus for the William Blake Trust were above all objects of beauty, recreating as near to perfection as possible Blake’s original achievements.” (Martin Butlin) Bentley, Blake Books, A82.
