Flaxman's Compositions: Homer - Hesiod - Aeschylus.

London: George Bell, 1882. Oblong quarto, bound in original pale brown cloth with gilt title on cover, lightly worn at edges and corners. The Hesiod Works and Days and Theogeny follows the Iliad and Odyssey, and collates: - (4, half title and contents list of plates), 37 plates, being original engraved title plus 36 of the Blake engravings. The Aeschylus follows as the last. Generally very good internally with occasional foxing at ends of the volume. The binding has been repaired at some stage: due to the oblong format and weight of the pages the first signature is loose, but the remainder holding firm. Bentley, BB, 456. This reduced-size edition appears to be a re-issue of Bentley's C edition of 1881 by Bell (only the Hesiod being present is implied by Bentley for that edition). 4 volumes in one of Flaxman's designs reduced to half size from Blake’s original prints for use by art students, including Blake's designs for Hesiod published in 1817.
