Hardback.  First edition.  The visionary art of Samuel Palmer, a friend and contemporary of William Blake, has been rediscovered by artists and scholars in our own day, as the romantic art of the nineteenth century has won a new audience. Etching was one of Palmer’s favorite media. His etched work represents a second flowering of his visionary style, long after the original flame of his Shoreham period, — fanned by his friendship with Blake, — had died away.  Raymond Lister sets out to relate the etchings to Palmer’s life and to his other works. He draws on unpublished material, giving many fascinating glimpses into the artist’s life and development, as well as collating and making use of much material in books that are now out of print. A detailed and up-to-date catalogue of the etch- ings, with descriptions of all their states, some previously unrecorded, is included. All the etchings are illustrated.

Condition: Previous owner’s tipped-in bookplate to front end-paper, otherwise very good.
