London: Harrison and Co., 1782. 2 vols bound in one, with no Novelist's Magazine title page, vi, 7-157; 125 pp, with all plates as called for. Each novel has a separate Harrison title page dated 1782, but Sentimental Journey, also included in Vol IX, has clearly been separately bound and is not present here. Both Blake's engravings after Stothard are in their first state; at p.66 of David Simple, and p.45 of Sir Launcelot Greaves. Pamela Lister's copy with her bookplate. Very good in original mottled calf with attractive gilt decorated contemporary calf spine with raised bands and red label, slightly worn. The pages and plates are clean, with just the title-page, facing blanks and p.3-4 of Sir Launcelot Greaves slightly foxed. Bentley, BB, 486A. Essick, William Blake's Commercial Book Illustrations, XI, p.31. (Item Id: 108765)
