A CHECKLIST OF BLAKE SCHOLARSHIP
OCTOBER 1970—MARCH 1972

This is our fourth checklist. It was compiled principally by Foster Foreman, Susan Grossman, and David Wyatt, all of the University of California, Berkeley and by Roberta Goetsch, of the University of New Mexico. The Japanese items were kindly contributed by Kenji Nakamura, College of Education, Tokyo University; the French items by Professor Andre Le Vot of the Sorbonne; and all the musical scores by Michael A. Keller, Music Library, State University of New York at Buffalo. Our thanks to Professor Thomas Connolly for his initiative in getting the list of musical scores compiled. To the best of our knowledge, the scores have not been listed previously in any Blake bibliography or checklist.

Again this year we have included entries for many items that are not scholarly, but that we believe our readers will be interested in knowing about, such as films, videotapes, theatrical productions, phonograph records, tapes, and musical scores And again, especially in the non-scholarly categories but also in the scholarly ones, we have listed a number of items whose dates fall far outside our nominal 1970-71 boundaries. For the first time we have listed the contents of the Newsletter itself in the Checklist. The contents of the present issue are not included.

We would appreciate corrections and additions from our readers.

The list is divided into these categories: Bibliography/Catalogues/New and Revised Books/Reprinted Books/Articles and Sections of Books/Reviews/Films and Videotapes/Tapes and Phonograph Records/Theater/Musical Scores.
