Two copies, one in wrappers and one in boards, of the sales catalogue for perhaps the greatest sale of William Blake material since the Linnell sale of 1918. These copies come from the library (the wrappers copy signed by him on the front wrapper, the boards copy unmarked but from the same provenance) of Patrick Macleod, who was Secretary of the William Blake Trust and Director of the Trianon Press. The wrappered copy has Macleod’s pencil annotations throughout signifying the buyer and price realised.

Two copies, octavo. One in original printed paper covered boards, one in original printed wrappers stapled at the fold. 16 black and white plates after Blake in each. Wrappers slightly soiled, tanned and minutely rubbed, excellent condition.
