II, and numerous illustrations. Later, quarter leather with orange cloth boards, decorated and lettered in gilt along backstrip. Very good. First edition. Of special interest are the 3 electrotypes from the Virgil woodblocks and the 17 electrotypes from the original copperplates of the Songs of Innocence and of Experience. Gilchrist was Blake's first full-scale biographer and the only biographer who actually met Blake. The work was unfinished when he died and largely completed by Dante Gabriel Rossetti who wrote the final chapter from Gilchrist's notes, with help from his brother William Michael, and also Swinburne whose own book on Blake was the result of his researches when reviewing Gilchrist's book.
