Facsimile of the Original Outlines before Colouring of the Songs of Innocence and Experience with an Introduction by Edwin J. Ellis.
London: Quaritch, 1893. Large 4to, xxi pp.text, 54 leaves printed in outline in reddish brown and then colored by hand and heightened in gold, except for two plates which remain uncolored. Modern half blue morocco, first blank and title-page foxed, otherwise a very fine copy. A very scarce companion volume to the colored version, both issued by Quaritch at the same time. This is a made-up copy with most of the plates very finely colored but with 2 plates uncolored and the text for the uncolored issue present rather than the (different) text for the colored issue. Bentley, BB, 173. An odd but unique copy. Bentley, BB 173 and BB Supplement 134/5 B.
