Blake and His Circle: A Checklist of Recent Publications

Because of my own reluctance to part with what I considered an unfinished compilation, and because of Blake’s move to Rochester, it proved to be impossible to publish the 1984-1986 checklist in its accustomed place, viz. number two of the previous volume. When it appeared in the subsequent winter issue, it was agreed that we would resume publication of this continuing checklist of Blake-related scholarship in the fall issue of each volume. This left me with no more than ten weeks until the final typescript for the present 1986-1987 compilation had to be mailed to the production office if there was to be any chance to bring the checklist back on schedule again.

Except for the decisions concerning research strategies, the bibliographer’s job is by necessity devoid of much innovative thinking; but then, the time, the care, and the scrupulous scrutiny bestowed upon such work will be decisive for the usefulness, i.e., the completeness and reliability, of the resulting compilation. Now, from what I have said it should be evident that I wasn’t in a precisely ideal position to achieve the best of what may have been possible in the 1986-1987 edition of “Blake and His Circle.” At the time I posted my typescript, some twenty omissions were known to me which will have to wait for a listing until next year. Therefore, I have to plead for the indulgence of authors and readers alike, who may look in vain here for an entry for this or that 1986 publication.

Shortage of time, as well as the scarcity of critical comments on what had been published in Blake 20 (1986-87): 76-100, prevented me from introducing any significant changes in the general organization of the entries in four main sections and their various subdivisions. I have even stuck to the same few deviations from the MLA Style Manual’s citation rules and have, e.g., quoted articles in the Burlington Magazine by reference to the volume number rather than by month, even though this journal is published twelve times a year. (In my experience this is a more rational, at least a more convenient style, since the separate issues will eventually be bound and shelved with the volume designation on the spine, while the information on the original month of publication can only be determined by laboriously searching—in this particular case—as many as eight hundred pages of the volume for the issue-titles.) However, the decision to adopt the arrangement of previous checklists as a model is not intended to render obsolete what I have said concerning the problems inherent in this structure in my introduction to the previous checklist. On the contrary, I would like to renew my invitation for all sorts of critical suggestions that may help to make these annual compilations more profitable and easier to use for the majority of their readers.

The present list covers those Blake-related publications that have come to my knowledge in the period between summer 1986 and May 1987, with—yet again, and especially so in part III—the addition of a considerable number of earlier, hitherto unrecorded contributions. At the same time, I wish to point out that many periodicals are a far cry from being on their official time schedule, so that a “1985” reference may well relate to the issue of a journal which, in fact, did not appear in print until 1986 or, in a few cases, even as late as 1987. At least in this respect, Blake is a rather rare exception to the rule.

I have searched, for this year’s list, all the 1985-87 issues of more than 500 journals in the fields of art history, bibliography, history, literary criticism and linguistics, philosophy, and political science. This, I hope, will sound impressive enough, but I have to add that the journals actually examined did not represent the selection I would have used if unhampered by the limitations of the holdings of those libraries I have had to work with. For example, I had no access to journals such as the Charles Lamb Bulletin, Christianity and Literature, Philosophy and Literature, and many others which are likely to publish articles and reviews that are of interest for Blake studies. Here then, I was dependent either on the generosity of authors who have kindly sent offprints, or on references I traced in the bibliographies compiled by others. Working on what may be said to be an outer orbit of Blake scholarship has certain advantages, but it also begin page 53 | back to top will have to account for certain shortcomings of which I am fully aware. Furthermore, I have to admit that besides the Times Literary Supplement, the London and the New York Review of Books, and the New Statesman, biweekly and weekly periodicals or even daily newspapers have not been systematically searched. Moreover, let me stress the fact that there is no computerized bibliographic programming behind this list which, on the contrary, retains all the characteristics—both positive and negative—of a fully custom-built, singlehanded product: it may be less uniform in style, it may be less complete than, e.g., the MLA International Bibliography which, I suppose, profits from all the technical and financial backing one can possibly imagine, but it remains more timely and more open in its scope than such a hi-tech compilation.

Despite the comparatively short period I report on in the present list, and to my own surprise, the number of entries is an astonishingly large one. This, in part, may be due to some hype in the Related Interest section for which I would have to assume responsibility. The inclusion, for example, of various studies of the works of W.B. Yeats, or—even more conspicuously—of the many items concerned with the literary rather than the critical productions of Arthur Symons is certainly problematic in a checklist that is primarily devoted to scholarly materials for the study of Blake and his circle. If, in the end, I have decided to be extensive rather than exclusive in coverage for the present list, this ought to be seen as an attempt to find out whether readers think of these entries as a mere nuisance and a waste of their precious time, or whether these listings may be considered a welcome addition to the standard curriculum of parts I, II, and IV.

Neither these introductory notes nor the following list will supply absorbing reading; I hope, however, that even as it is the annual checklist will prove a useful research tool for following up a wide variety of interests in the field. It would have been less complete and accurate than it actually is, had I not enjoyed the help of a considerable number of publishing houses as well as communication with many friends and colleagues. While the former have generously supplied inspection copies of their publications and have thus helped to prevent misleading information from creeping into the list (such as the mistake that is recorded in my note to #117, below), the latter freely gave of their time, their expertise, and—very often—their stock of offprints in reply to my enquiries; I gratefully thank Bryan Aubrey, Rodney Baine, Stephen Behrendt, G. E. Bentley, Jr., David Bindman, Ewa Borkowska, Sebastian Carter, Brendan Donnellan, Morris Eaves, Robert Essick, Mark Greenberg, Wendy Greenhouse, Nelson Hilton, James Hogg, Seymour Howard, Georg Kamp, Jenijoy La Belle, James McCord, Morton Paley, Henry Summerfield, Dennis Welch, and Bette Charlene Werner. Patricia Neill, who has also been responsible for the compilation of the author index, has been expertly supervising the production of the checklist and, moreover, has coped with my stop-press corrections with both patience and efficiency.

Note: Items which I have not been able to examine personally are preceded by an asterisk.

Editions, Translations, Facsimilies, Reproductions

1. *Bindman, David, ed. Colour Versions of William Blake’s Book of Job Designs from the Circle of John Linnell: Facsimilies of the New Zealand and Collins Sets and the Fitzwilliam Plates. London: William Blake Trust, 1987. [A limited edition of 387 copies, produced under the direction of the late Arnold Fawcus by the Trianon Press. Contains a detailed analysis and comparison of the color versions by Bo Ossian Lindberg. While this is entitled “The Authenticity of the New Zealand Set and of the Coloured Engravings,” Lindberg of course argues that the colored versions of the engraved Job designs are “authentic” works which were executed by members of the Linnell circle and in the actual production of which Blake had no direct participation whatsoever. The Collins and Fitzwilliam Museum sets of the hand-tinted engravings are here reproduced in full for the first time. All the facsimile plates have been colored by hand through stencils, employing the same processes as in earlier Blake Trust facsimilies of the illuminated books. A full descriptive prospectus of the edition is available upon request; see #2, the companion volume to Colour Versions, for details.]

2. Bindman, David, ed. William Blake’s Illustrations of the Book of Job: The Engravings and Related Material with Essays, Catalogue of States and Printings, Commentary on the Plates and Documentary Record. 2 vols. London: William Blake Trust, 1987. [This limited edition of 387 copies has been in gestation since 1969; its publication marks an important contribution to Blake scholarship and, in an admittedly pathetic sense, is a tribute to the late Sir Geoffrey Keynes and the late Arnold Fawcus and their commitment to the task of making Blake’s works available in highly reliable facsimile editions. The text volume contains essays by the editor and by Keynes; Barbara Bryant contributes “A Documentary and Bibliographic Record” on the Job designs (103-47), and Robert N. Essick an essay on the graphic form of the engravings with a complete “Catalogue of Their States and Printings” (35-101). The fascicules with the facsimile plates contain monochrome reproductions of the preparatory drawings, the related begin page 54 | back to top watercolor paintings, and the engravings in proof state; these are accompanied by a plate-by-plate commentary on “The Meaning of Blake’s Job” by Bo Lindberg. Together with its companion volume (see #1), this edition presents a fully revised and updated version of the magnificent 1935 facsimile of Job, edited by Keynes and Binyon for the Pierpont Morgan Library. A full description of the work, together with a sample of the plates which were printed by the Trianon Press under the direction of Fawcus, is available in a prospectus; address your request to the William Blake Trust, 90 Great Russell Street, London WC1B 3PY, England.]

Blake’s human sublimity represents not only a rhetorical or aesthetic category, but also a civic and perceptival code—a way of thinking, acting and seeing.”]

[Selections from Palmer’s letters, journals, memoranda, poems, essays, and inscriptions; mostly taken from previously published sources, with some of the writings in new transcriptions that differ here or there from Raymond Lister’s readings. Some of the letters, poems, and memoranda, however, “are published here for the first time from documents belonging to the Linnell Trust, the Bodleian Library, and the Victoria and Albert Museum.” Though the editor has “omitted none of the few poems and essays by Palmer that survive” (21) he had had no access to one of the two recently traced copies of the artist’s pamphlet containing An Address to the Electors of West Kent, which has been edited for the pages of this journal by David Bindman; see Blake/An Illustrated Quarterly 20 (1986-1987): 88-89, #246 and 251.]

Works of Related Interest

Some General Studies, Mostly of Romantic Art, Poetry, and Their Historical Context

143. Altick, Richard D. Painting from Books: Art and Literature in Britain, 1760-1900. Columbus, OH: Ohio State UP, 1985. £54.00. [Part 1, chapter 2 treats eighteenth-century book illustrations, Boydell’s Shakespeare Gallery, Macklin’s Poet’s Gallery, and Fuseli’s Milton Gallery (37-55); the whole of the book’s second part (255-331) is devoted to the study of “Images from Shakespeare,” and there are numerous references to artists such as West, Stothard, William Bell Scott, Alexander Runciman, Romney, Reynolds, Opie, Northcote, Mortimer, Morland, Kauffmann, Fuseli, Blake, Barry, et al. as well as to Cowper, Gray, Hayley, and all the major British authors that were illustrated by Blake and his contemporaries. To say the least, one would have to admit that this volume of more than 500 pages with its 356 illustrations presents a mine of information for the history of British book illustration and literary painting; most important, perhaps, is Altick’s attempt at a reconstruction of “What happened when people ‘read’ pictures” (234) in the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries.]

144. Altizer, Thomas J. J. History as Apocalypse. SUNY Series in Religion. Albany, NY: State U of New York P, 1985. $36.50 cloth / $12.95 paper.

There are two entire chapters devoted to the study of Shakespeare in Blake’s “Romantic Imagination,” tracing the “Auspices of Shakespeare” in his poetry, 117-56. With its numerous references to the reception of the Bard’s poems and plays in the works of Blake’s contemporaries the book as a whole, however, certainly should be of “Related Interest” to Blake scholars, too.]

[Publishes and analyzes a long letter written by Edwards on 12 Aug. 1800, in which he reports to Lord Grenville from Napoleonic France on the state of affairs—both political and book wise. The essay forms the first installment of a series of studies of the book-trade around the year 1800 in Britain, and is related to Bentley’s forthcoming book on “F. J. DuRoveray, Henry Fuseli, and Elegant Book-Making 1798-1806.”]
