Aphorisms on Man: translated from the Original Manuscript...
Small 8vo. London: J. Johnson, 1789. Small 8vo, viii, 224 pages. With a frontispiece engraved by Blake after Fuseli. Old half calf neatly rebacked, a very good copy. Bookplate of PAW. Second edition (first printed in 1788), first state of the plate. The frontispiece is after a drawing by Fuseli (see Essick, Blake and His Contemporaries..., 43 for the original drawing) and is a powerful image. The text notes â??End of Vol. Iâ? but no further volumes appeared as a fire destroyed Lavaterâ??s manuscript at the printer. The Huntington Library has Blakeâ??s own copy, extensively annotated throughout. Bentley, Blake Books, 480. Essick and Easson 2, XXXII, 1c. Essick, William Blakeâ??s Commercial Book Illustrations, XVIII. Pencil note at front recording that this copy was purchased from H.D. (Dicky) Lyon in 1987.
