Water-Colour Designs For The Poems Of Thomas Gray. A Facsimile with Introduction and Commentary by Sir Geoffrey Keynes.
London: Trianon Press, 1971. Small folio, 72 pages, with 16 color facsimile leaves, suites of progressive plates, and 116 monochrome illustrations. Marbled boards, morocco backstrip, slipcase, a fine copy as issued. Limited to 28 copies so inscribed and signed by Geoffrey Keynes (this book is number 25). This is the de luxe edition of the trade version of the Gray issued by the Trianon Press in 1972 using 8-color printing. Although the three-volume folio edition is a magnificent piece of book making, this version is more accessible and easier to use and enjoy, and the quality of the color printing is Trianon Press at its best.
