Paraphrased from the University of Rochester: The Blake Quarterly began as the Blake Newsletter with Morton Paley as Editor in June of 1967, and era during which William Blake had emerged as a hero of metaphysical poetry, art, and philosophy. In 1977 publication was moved from its origin at the University of California Berkeley Department of English to the University of New Mexico. These volumes were printed on the University of New Mexico's linotype machines which were abandoned in 1982-83 for computer typesetting. Issues contain many illustrated notes, essays, discussions and reviews, and accounts of recent research and sales. "[The] long-anticipated arguments mentioned in the first issue, about the dating and sequence of the two Nights the Seventh of The Four Zoas, resurfaced in...special issue [Vol.12,No.2] Fall 1978. Paley’s fundamental essay on Blake and Swedenborg appeared in [Vol.13,No.2] Fall 1979." Both are included here.
