Valuable Printed Books and Manuscripts.
London: Christie's, 1997. 4to, 220, (18) pp, with 266 lots, fully illustrated in colors and black and white. Very good, in original wrappers with price sheet laid in. Contains George Goyder's Blake collection in 8 lots representing 246 separate items, the bulk being a large lot comprising his Blake reference library. Highlights included a large paper hand colored copy of Triumphs of Temper (coloring apparently by Blake - so the bargain of the sale at £3,500 + 15% premium), The Pastorals of Virgil, and several other scarce items including William Bell Scott's copy of The Grave, with a manuscript poem by him.
