About This Item

[London]: Faber and Faber, 1945. 24pp. Large quarto. Sewn decorated wrapper. Small nick toward top of front wrapper fore-edge, small chip at crown of spine, light corner bumps, but a very good copy, in chipped and split remnants of the impossibly fragile dust jacket. First edition. A selection of ten tipped-in color plates, attended by Keynes' introduction and comments about each plate. The copy bears Keynes's presentation inscription on the title-page: "Graham Robertson from Geoffrey Keynes," and exhibits a correction, in ink, by Keynes in the text on p.24. There is another correction, in pencil on p. 4, in another hand. A good association copy, joining one of the great Blake collectors with one of Blake's primary scholar/editors. Robertson turns up among Keynes's friends for mention in THE GATES OF MEMORY (1981, pp,102-3), and the Robertson estate, as executed by Kerrison Preston, gave the Blake Trust a substantial endowment to aid in its launch. With the signature of the recipient's executor, "K. Preston," on the front panel of the dust jacket.
