Notes: Very Good lot of 9 Issues of the Blake Newsletter. 8 1/2" x 11" staplebound glossy pictorial wraps featuring the artwork of William Blake to the covers, all issues show minor shelf and reading wear, with Issue 35 showing bumping to bottom of spine and more extensive rubbing to covers, else all issues are fully intact, clean, unmarked, and with no staple oxidization. Issue 35 is the illustrated checklist compiled by Ruth Fine Lehrer, but all other issues include news, essays, discussions, reviews, and black-and-white illustrations of Blake's paintings and prints. Issue 36 includes a discussion by John Wright on Blake's relief etching including details and discussion of the plates themselves. That issue also includes black-and-white photo stills of a dance-drama called "the Mental Traveler", based on the ballad by William Blake, beside a detailed review of the performance. Issue 37 includes images of Golgonooza, the Church and School of William Blake in Ohio. Issue 40 includes a two-page comic drawn by Martin Read and phrased from "Blake Records" titled "A Vision for 1977: Envisioned by a Blakean Cat", edited by GE Bentley, Jr. Issue 42 includes a discussion with the composer Arthur Farwell about his Blake-inspired compositions, including sheet music and illustrative reference. The Blake Newsletter is an invaluable reference for the scholar and novice alike, and a worthy addition to any library of discussion material about William Blake.
