[Ruthven Todd: “Blake’s Dante Plates,” Gilchrist’s Life, article collection]begin page 35 |
Mr. Ruthven Todd’s essay, “Blake’s Dante Plates” has been reprinted, with additions, from BOOK COLLECTING & LIBRARY MONTHLY (147 Gray’s Inn Road, London, W.C. I). Copies are available from the publisher at 75¢ each.
As readers of the Newsletter know, Mr. Todd has been working on a revised edition of Gilchrist’s Life. We have sent him xeroxes of a number of Blake articles in connection with this, and he proposes to eventually give these, with whatever others are sent to him, to the Preston Blake Library in Westminster. The articles are to be mounted in large folio loose-leaf volumes—over a dozen volumes have been made up already—with an index volume for the set. The advantages of such a collection to Blake scholars working in London are self-evident, and we would like to encourage authors of articles to send xeroxes begin page 36 | (or two offprints, for mounting) to Mr. Todd. His address is Ca’n Bielo/ Galilea/ Mallorca/ Spain.
