The first of the superb Trianon Press Blake Facsimiles : 'The final result bears the closest possible resemblance to Blake's original plates'. Edition Limited to 516 numbered copies : superbly printed on a pure rag paper especially manufactured to match the original paper used by Blake. The earliest, and one of the most important and most admired of the Trianon Press Facsimiles, it was taken from the only complete copy of Jerusalem to have been hand-printed and hand-coloured by William Blake himself. ** The Raymond Lister Copy : with the discreet and very attractive little book label of Pamela & Raymond Lister in the Cambridge calligraphic style of Reynolds Stone / Will Carter / David Kindersley. Raymond Lister, a President of the Royal Society of Miniature Painters, was an important scholar of Blake and his followers. Lister was closely involved in work with Sir Geoffrey Keynes, Arnold Fawcus of the Trianon Press and the Blake Trust. Lister's own Samuel Palmer : A Vision Recaptured was produced by the Trianon Press, as were the unaccompanied plates intended for his Samuel Palmer Catalogue Raisonné.
