THE NORTON BLAKE
The second printing of Blake’s Poetry and Designs: A Norton Critical Edition appears to have a secure binding. Anyone whose duly purchased copy of the first printing fell apart may receive a new book by writing to Mr. James L. Mairs, W. W. Norton & Company, Inc., 500 Fifth Avenue, New York, N. Y. 10036. It is necessary to return the first two pages of any damaged copy (the false title and title pages) for replacement. It would be appreciated if teachers would batch the necessary pages for all students’ copies needing replacing and mail in bulk to Mr. Mairs’ attention. These pages must be returned so that Norton can back up its complaints to the subcontractor who provided the “Perfect Binding,” as the trade name has it. Complimentary copies, except for legitimate desk copies, cannot be replaced. The editors apologize for the inconvenience to all concerned and urge that recipients of replacement copies request the second (corrected) printing from Norton.
