Folio, 25 color plates, 8 proofs, and commentary at the end, eight color facsimile trial proofs, twelve pages of text plus an extra suite of fourteen states of plate B, collotype profs, and a matching guide-sheet and stencil. Original full brown morocco, slipcase. As new. #6 of 32 de luxe copies with extra material, proofs, stencil etc. The longest of Blake's prophetic books which tells of the fall of Albion, Blake's embodiment of man, or the Western World.
