HUNTINGTON SYMPOSIUM & EXHIBITION

In conjunction with an exhibition of “Prints by the Blake Followers” to be held November through February 1982, the Henry E. Huntington Library and Art Gallery is holding a symposium on Saturday, 13 February. The tentative program includes papers by G. E. Bentley, Jr. (“Blake and the Blake Followers: Biographical Information”), Robert N. Essick (“John Linnell as a Printmaker”), Shelley M. Bennett (“The Blake Followers in the Context of Contemporary English Art”), and Morton D. Paley (“Samuel Palmer’s Illustrations to Milton”). There will be a registration fee of $3.00. For reservations to attend the symposium, write to the Henry E. Huntington Art Gallery, 1151 Oxford Rd., San Marino. CA 91108, or call (213) 792-6141, ext. 317.

Though the pricing policies of the Clarendon Press seem designed to return us to the early days of Oxford University, when books were chained to library shelves, we can be grateful that the contents of these two volumes will reward the scholar who seeks them out. I am less happy with the quality of binding, which (as was the case with Shelley’s Letters, as issued by Clarendon some years ago) seems in danger of coming to pieces as I finish writing this review. The management of a historically great press—one that still attracts some of the world’s best scholarship—ought to be able to employ book designers, printers, and binders capable of producing a physical artifact commensurate in quality with its intellectual content.
