Illustrations of the Book of Job (The New Zealand Set).
by Blake, William.
Folio. Paris: Trianon Press, 1987. Folio, 22 facsimile plates loose in folder. Hand-colored set as issued. Mint. From Part 2 of the Trianon Press Book of Job publication, Colour Versions of William Blake’s Book of Job Designs from the Circle of John Linnell, which has color facsimiles of the New Zealand set, the Collins set, and the Fitzwilliam plates (not a complete set), along with a volume of commentary by Bo Lindberg, edited by David Bindman. 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.” (Inventory #: 108862)
