Display caption

Blake's 'Illustrations of the Book of Job' rank among his supreme achievements as a printmaker. Altogether 315 sets of the original 1825-6 edition appear to have been published, and both George Richmond and Edward Calvert are known to have been among the subscribers. This tracing of the engraved title-page is thought to have been made by Richmond.
