Paraphrased from the University of Rochester: The Blake Newsletter began 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. The Newsletter became the Blake Quarterly in 1977. "Morris Eaves joined [Morton] Paley in 1970, after fourteen issues, when the newsletter was caught in severe budget cuts by the California legislature. Eaves moved the newsletter’s printing and publishing business to the University of New Mexico after persuading the dean in Albuquerque to grant a subsidy of $1500 a year. Mimeograph became offset lithography, and glossy paper accommodated halftone illustrations. The first issue [here included 14 as Vol.4, No.2, Fall 1970] from New Mexico included news and works in progress, four images, notes by David Bindman and Phillips, a review by E. J. Rose of the second edition of David Erdman’s Blake: Prophet against Empire, queries from W. H. Stevenson and Ruthven Todd, and the third annual checklist of Blake scholarship, which included criticism along with catalogues, reproductions, films and television programs, phonograph records, and musical scores." This lot includes 12(v.3,no.4),(v.3,no.4 part ii), 13(v.4,no.1), 14(v.4,no.2), 15(v.4,no.2), 16(v.4,no.4), 19(v.5,no.3), Index to Vol.1 No.4, and Index to Vol. 3.
