Jerusalem. The Emanation of the Giant Albion.
London: Trianon Press, 1974. Folio, 25 colour facsimile leaves and 9 pp of commentary by Sir Geoffrey Keynes. Very good in quarter brown morocco over marbled boards in slipcase, with minimal rubbing to corners, and very pale and sparse spotting to the reverse of a few facsimile leaves. Limited to 500 copies, copy J of 26 copies lettered A to Z. The longest of Blake's prophetic books which tells of the fall of Albion, Blake's embodiment of man, or the Western World. Six copies were printed between 1820 & 1827 and a further 4 copies were printed posthumously. This is the facsimile of Lord Cunliffe's copy (copy B) and Kerrison Preston's proofs; the coloring differs markedly from the Stirling copy which was the first Trianon Press Blake facsimile published in 1950. Bentley, BB, A82. Bentley, BB, A 82.
