        All Religions are One.

      Clairvaux, Jura, France: for The Trianon Press for The William Blake Trust, London, 1970 - Quarto. Original green full morocco, titles to spine gilt. With the original marbled slipcase. Slight darkening to spine, otherwise a fine copy. Facsimile plates thoughout achieved by collotype, some with watercolour washes applied by hand. First edition thus, publisher Arnold Fawcus's copy, copy A of 26 lettered copies reserved for the Trustees of the William Blake Trust and the Publishers, in full morocco with a set of proofs showing the progressive states of the collotype process, from a total edition of 662 copies on Arches pure rag paper made to match the paper used by Blake. This copy derives from the Trianon Press Archive, from the estate of Trianon publisher and founder Arnold Fawcus. Blake scholar Geoffrey Keynes (1887-1982), the brother of John Maynard, provides a commentary and bibliographical history. He summarises the gnomic intent of Blake's early tractate thus: "Blake identifies the Poetic Genius, that is God, with 'Divine Humanity'. Man is therefore uniform, yet with infinite variety in the individuals. All men, thus derived from a universal Poetic Genius, have but one religion, though each nation has its difference beliefs according to its needs." [Attributes: First Edition]

        Preliminary cover design for Penny Candy, by Edward Fenton.

      c. 1970. Watercolor and ink on paper, measuring 8 1/4 by 7 1/4 inches. Archivally matted and framed. Preliminary artwork for the cover design of Fenton's book, a fantasy story based on the English "Tinker Tailor" rhyme. A copy of the trade paperback edition of the book, which was published by Holt in 1970, is included in a sleeve affixed to the back of the frame. The key differences between this preliminary drawing and the finished work are most discernible in the five children standing in front of the candy counter: in the preliminary artwork, the children's clothing is colored, their arrangement is different, as is their height in relation to the counter. Gorey also used some ink flourishes to make the titling, which lines up vertically on either side of the central image, appear more like pieces of candy. This was not used in the published version. Gorey's watercolor work for published books seldom appears on the market. Very fine in an attractive black acrylic and resin frame.

        Crow. From the Life and Songs of The Crow.

      London: Faber and Faber, 1970. FIRST EDITION, with ORIGINAL ARTWORK. Slim octavo, pp. 80. Bound in publisher's black cloth, in a pictorial jacket designed by the illustrator. Original watercolour painting by Baskin to the flyleaf - a large, bold, colour depiction of the crow. Book is in fine condition, dustjacket in like; jacket is also signed by the illustrator. Born in 1922, Leonard Baskin was an accomplished sculptor, book illustrator, printmaker, graphic artist, writer and teacher. He was commissioned to produce a bronze statue of a seated figure for the Holocaust Memorial in Ann Arbor, Michigan, which was erected in 1994. Baskin lived in the U.S. for most of his life, but spent nine years in Devon at Lurley Manor, close to his friend Ted Hughes - for whom he illustrated Crow. Hughes' collection fits into the children's genre rather loosely; his poetry is certainly accessible to all ages, but explores dark and macabre themes that are, at times, fairly horrifying. A dazzling volume.
