London: Trianon Press, 1955. Small 8vo, 54 color plates, 3 pp. printed text, facsimile leaves and stencils etc. at end. Full blue morocco with slipcase. Backstrip darkened, and slipcase edges very slightly rubbed, interior bright and clean, a very good copy. Inscribed to his wife, “Julie, with love from Arnold 1956” by Arnold Fawcus. One of 26 copies (numbered A to Z) reserved for the Library of Congress, Mr. Lessing J. Rosenwald, the Trustees of the Blake Trust, and the Publishers. Limited overall to 526 copies in all, this being copy M; 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. (Item Id: 107729)
