Colophon: The publication of this facsimile of All Religions are One by William Blake was made possible by the generosity of the H.E. Huntington Library and Art Gallery, San Marino, California, who allowed the plates in their collection to be photographed for reproduction, and of Sir Geoffrey Keynes, who lent original material from his collection. The edition consists of 662 copies, printed on Arches pure rag paper made to match the paper used by Blake. 36 copies numbered I to XXVI, bound in full leather morocco, each containing a set of proofs shewing the progressive stages of the collotype printing of the plates. 600 copies numbered 1 to 600, bound in quarter leather morocco with hand-marbled paper sides. 26 copies numbered A to Z, reserved for the Trustees of the William Blake Trust and the Publishers. The plates were reproduced in Paris in the workshops of Trianon Press (France) by the collotype process, with some water-colour washes added by hand. The editorial matter was printed by the Imprimerie Darantiere, Dijon; the binding was by Engel, Malakoff, and the hand-made slip-case by Adine, Paris. The book was produced and published, under the supervision of Mr. Arnold Fawcus, by the Trianon Press, Château de Boissia, Clairvaux, Jura, France, and is distributed throughout the world by Bernard Quaritch Ltd., 5 to 8 Lower John Street, Golden Square, London W1V 6AB.
