The Writings of William Blake.
London: The Nonesuch Press, 1925. 3 volume set, 11 inches tall. A rather spectacular full calf executed shortly after the date of publication replacing the rather drab quarter vellum, which is bound in. With gilt raised bands, labels, fine and ornate gilt tooling to the panels and triple gilt fillets framing a 'Cambridge Panel' on the boards. Gilt top edges, the remainder deckled. Minor rubbing and marking. Edited by Geoffrey Keynes. Though neglected in his life time he has become probably the most influential English romantic poets. Blake's poetry, painting and printmaking exert a powerful influence to the present day.
