William Blake: Creative Will and the Poetic Image

£120.00

Product description

First edition 1927, very scarce limited edition of 35 copies signed and numbered by the author on the second free endpaper. Dedication to Walter de la Mare opposite the title page which was omitted from the second edition. Pale grey/off white marbled paper covered boards with gilt titles on the front. The board margins and spine have some surface/handling soiling with a very small amount of wear at the top of the spine and the corners of the rear board. The boards are bowed outwards as though the paper covering has shrunk against the inner card. All pages are evenly lightly tanned. On the front pastedown is written in pencil '35 copies, signed by Jack Lindsay on Japon Vellum?'. The sheets are smooth, translucent and slightly glossy so do appear to be Japon Vellum. No inscriptions in the text which is tightly bound. Fore and lower edges are untrimmed. 

Jack Lindsay was a prolific author through much of the 20th century. He was a founder of Fanfrolico Press which was known for fine publishing of limited editions.

Oxfam Bookshop Lymington

Lymington is on the South coast, bordering on the New Forest National Park which was created as a Royal Forest in 1079 by William the Conqueror, and first recorded as 'Nova Foresta' in the Doomsday Book in 1086. Our Oxfam Shop at 73, The High Street is in a lovely Georgian building, the tallest in Lymington. The elegant Georgian buildings lining the wide main street were built mostly for merchants in the local salt trade. The famous Saturday market brings the town to life with its variety of stalls. The area is renowned for outdoor pursuits, including camping, sailing, windsurfing, and surfing, as well as forest walks and horse riding.
