You are right: the illustrations are totally different from Blake's but I like them very much. And the book itself is gorgeous. As Paul W. Nash says in "Folio 60": "The typography, illustration and binding combine to make this one of the most satisfying books published by the Society."
What is the original price? I found one on ABE. The seller is asking for 58 pounds inclusive shipping.
The price given in the 1992 prospectus was £55.00. I suppose, given the current prices, that either makes the book either a bargain or a bad investment, depending on how you look at it.
I won my quarter leather Blake Paradise Lost at ebay last year for £ 43 plus £ 12 shipping UK to Germany. Book and slip case are in fine condition. As copies start at £ 55 on abebooks currently I think I made a good investment both financially and educationally ;) (and it sure looks very nice aside my Blake illustrated Dante Folio).
