A New and Improved History of England.
London: J.Johnson, 1798. 8vo, iv, (4), 551, (1, folding chronological chart), with 4 plates engraved by Blake, from designs ascribed to Fuseli. Recently bound in mottled calf with red leather title and gilt decorations to spine. A very clean copy, with good page margins, but just a touch of mottling to edges of endpapers. The plates have clean and crisp impressions: the imprints of plates 2 and 3 are trimmed closely as often the case with this title, with partial loss of some lower letters on that of plate 2, but plate 3's imprint is fully legible. Bentley, BB, 415, Essick, William Blake's Commercial Book Illustrations, XXXVI, p75.
