This is the Kingsport Press (Tennessee) text printing and Clarke and Way (New York) color plate processing, for Bollingen’s Series XXX – 11 and Princeton University Press, of Kathleen Raine’s two-volume study, Blake and Tradition (428 and 367 pp.), a work which originated in the 1962 A. W. Mellon Lecture in the Fine Arts Series.
The slip cover is sunned to its borders and with several light scuffs, but it has no significant stains or tears. It is structurally sound, and with all text unfaded.
The dust jackets are in good condition, with shallow edge wear, and a crease at the bend to the front flap of volume I, but clean overall and with no deep tears or fade.
The books themselves are in fine condition, with the grey covers (7.75″ x 10.25″) unfaded, clean, and with straight spines, which are securely attached. The insides are uniformly clean, with no stamps or other attachments, no writing or notations, no tears or creases, no stains or scuffs. The binding is tight, with no loose or missing pages. The many art reproductions and all text are as new.
The accompanying photos are accurate reflections of the book conditions.
