    First Edition.

    30.5cm x 23cm. [1], 59 hand-tinted leaves (printed recto only). Original blue cloth, gilt lettering and decoration, all edges gilt.

    Written, drawn, and tinted by Edwin J. Ellis. Sixty plates (including the title), each with a large design and text printed in sepia in the manner of William Blake, Ellis being an ardent devotee of Blake’s having edited The Works of William Blake: Poetic, Symbolic and Critical together with W. B. Yeats, also published by Quaritch in the same year. Despite the clear indications to the dreams of Blake, the work stands as its own: the apocalypse is absent, the women are prettier, and while not of Blake’s mastery, the technical differences are more than appetizing.

    Spine tanned and minor soiling to cloth. The joints thinned and with some splitting, though the binding still firm. Tail fore-edge corner rubbed. The interior mostly clean and bright, only some very minor soiling and tanning. Good Condition.
