London: Trianon Press, 1958. 4to, with 27 facsimile plates and 5 pp of commentary by Sir Geoffrey Keynes.

Copy 286 of the edition of 526, reproducing the Rosenwald copy now at the Library of Congress. One of the scarcest of the Trianon facsimiles. Blakes most ambitious production thitherto... seven copies and a few scattered pages have been located... intended to be the first of a series dealing with activities in the supernatural world which caused the creation of the natural world and the early history of mankind.
