About this Item

No. 200 of 250 limitation, signed and numbered in pencil by Leonard Baskin. This was Baskin's first venture into publishing, and his jagged and stark illustrations amplify the fire and brimstone of Blake's both naive and worldweary verse that lilts at the same time it pierces and challenges. Printed on an Italian hand-made paper, this is indeed a very handsome brochure, and this copy is pristine internally, with the faint remnants of tape top and bottom on both the front and rear of the wraps the only minor blight to the special production.

Shipping Terms:

The shipping cost provided automatically by ABE assumes that the item is the size of an average hardcover book. Since our stock is comprised largely of material which is bigger and heavier, we will often need to request additional shipping charges as a result. We pride ourselves on always packing safely, with the actual materials and method of packing depending on the item(s), where it is going, and with whom we are shipping. We most frequently use the post office, but on some high value items, or upon request, we may use alternatively UPS or FedEx. With the postal service, to domestic destinations with lower value items and the automatically furnished ABE shipping quote, we will usually use Media Mail; on higher value items we are partial to Priority or Express Mail. We will always seek to comply with a customer's wishes if they are communicated to us. When we seek additional shipping charges, we pass along those charges at our cost -- we do not add for handling or materials generally.
