Illustrations of the Book of Job. Introduction by Laurence Binyon and Geoffrey Keynes.

New York: Pierpont Morgan Library, 1935. Large 4to, text, illustrations. Originally, in six fascicles in original wrappers with labels, enclosed in an original blue cloth box. Plates are near fine (and often splendid), wrappers bear a few insignificant marks, box rather worn. A magnificent production, showing for the first time the three colored sets done by Blake and the drawings for the smaller set, as well as reproducing in fine facsimile the proof issue of the first printing. Issued in a small edition and hard to find in good condition. Bentley, Blake Books, 374. “The 134 plates of this excellent edition include Blake’s pencil drawings and water-colours and proofs of his engravings. For the genesis of Job it is of crucial importance.” Despite the Trianon Press edition of 1987, this edition is still a necessity as it reproduces in color a set not reproduced in color in the Trianon edition.
