Blake and the Youthful Ancients

Baskin's "Blake and the Youthful Ancients" was published in 1956. Fifty copies were printed, the book consisted of 18 wood engravings of William Blake and his followers. This is the last book Baskin made with his own hands, for he was as he said, "a compositor and pressman of no distinction."
