Songs of Innocence and of Experience.
London: Trianon Press, 1955. Small 8vo, 54 color plates, 3 pp. printed text, facsimile leaves and stencils etc. at end. Full blue morocco, slipcase, a very good copy. De luxe edition, limited to 15 copies (VI-XX) with proof samples of the two-color collotype, a collotype guide, and an original stencil. Limited overall to 526 copies in all, this being number XVI; the superb color facsimile of the Rosenwald-LC copy (Z). One of the scarcest, and the most desirable of all the magnificent Trianon Press Blake facsimiles which have been hailed as the finest examples of color collotype facsimile printing of the 20th century. The colophon notes that as many as thirty stencils were used to create each plate. Bentley, Blake Books, 187.
