The edition was limited to 65 copies reserved by the William Blake Trust, of 387 sets in all (22 de luxe, 65 thus numbered I-LXV, 50 numbered i-l being a less expensively bound version for scholars and libraries, and 250 of the regular edition numbered 1-250). The New Zealand Set are careful watercolor copies of the central designs of the original engravings, produced by the circle of John Linell, presented here in faithful facsimile. Butlin noted in the Blake Quarterly: "The long list of color facsimiles produced by the Trianon Press under Arnold Fawcus for the William Blake Trust were above all objects of beauty, recreating as near to perfection as possible Blake's original achievements.".

About this Item: London: Trianon Press, 1972. Folio, with 116 color facsimile leaves reproduced by collotype and hand-stencil color, the text of the poems reproduced from copper-plate with 3 additional printings to reproduce Blake's pencillings and the tone of the paper. Original sheets, marbled boards, morocco backstrip lettered in gilt,quarter brown morocco box. Number 370. Limited to 132 copies unbound in the French style; 220 copies in three volumes quarter morocco; 36 de luxe copies with extra material for exhibition purposes in a full morocco portfolio with an additional full leather portfolio containing progressive states, original guide sheets and stencils, etc. ; and 12 grand luxe copies bound in three volumes full morocco, with a full leather portfolio. In this, one of Blake's most extravagant tours de force, he took Gray's poems as a springboard for epic watercolors. Mounting the text on a large sheet, he painted all around the margins some of his most powerful and striking designs. The illustrations to a poem on the death of a favorite cat drowned in a goldfish bowl, for example, are a classic example of his visionary powers transcending the prosaic. The Trianon Press reproductions are recognized as the finest examples of the art of facsimile reproduction; working from the originals in Paul Mellon's collection, each leaf is faithfully hand-colored through stencils to achieve an astonishing exactitude. The Times Literary Supplement stated that nothing like these books had ever been printed before and that it was highly unlikely that they could be printed again. Bentley, Blake Books, 385.
