JERUSALEM. The Emanation of the Giant Albion
. London: Trianon Press for the William Blake Trust, [1951]. 4to, (6), ix text, and 100 pochoir colorplates. Blue buckram, gilt title. Very good copy in a new slipcase. Limited to 516 copies. The definitive facsimile of one of Blake?s greatest works and the first of the magnificent series of facsimiles created by the Trianon Press of Blake?s illuminated books. The Preludium is by Joseph Wicksteed and the Bibliographical Statement by Geoffrey Keynes. Bentley 78. "Blake's etched copperplates, giving the text of his poem and the basis of the designs, were printed by him in a rich orange ink and were then illuminated by hand in water colours and gold. The etched base has now been reproduced by collotype in orange and the prints have then been coloured by hand by a stencilling process, so that the final result bears the closest possible resemblance to Blake's original plates. An average of forty-four applications of water colours was required for each full page illustration, of which there are four. Of the remainder, fifty-one have some text with designs filling half the page or more, and thirty-five have text with small marginal decorations.". (Introduction)
