Description:

SWINBURNE, Algernon Charles: William Blake. A Critical Essay.

London, John Camden Hotten, 1868. Octavo (230 x 155 mm), viii, 304, 16 (advertisements) pages plus 9 plates (7 of them hand-coloured). Blue cloth; spine lettered and ruled in gilt; sides panelled in gilt; spine lightly sunned and marked; cloth lightly worn at the extremities, with a small hole in the rear hinge near the head; a few leaves carelessly opened, causing slight loss to the blank upper margins; overall a very good copy.

Notes:

The plates are hand-coloured facsimiles reproducing pages from Blake's 'Jerusalem', 'Marriage of Heaven and Hell', and 'The Book of Thel'. With the small name-plate of Sir John William Downer (1843-1915), lawyer and politician (not least, one of the Fathers of Australian Federation).
