Robert N. Essick’s first sales review was for 1971; that year, he detailed the sale of “Tiriel Supporting Myratana” and “Tiriel Leaving Har and Heva” for $15,420 and $9766 respectively. This year, he records the auction of another Tiriel drawing for £170,400 (including fees).

G. E. Bentley, Jr., writes on Blake’s bibliography, biography, and texts.
Morton D. Paley is completing a book on Samuel Taylor Coleridge and the fine arts.
