PREFACE

The Handlist was compiled by Mr. Richard Morgan of the staff of the Department of Prints and Drawings, working largely from a list of press-marks (under subject headings such as those at the beginning of Part 1, e.g., ‘Engravings by Blake’) without title, supplemented by references chiefly to Binyon and Russell. I have identified prints and drawings with information beyond what is given in Binyon and Russell**The doubts as to authenticity expressed in this Handlist are those of GEB, not of the Print Room staff. and amplified descriptions such as ‘Figure studies’. In general picture titles in quotation marks are Blake’s own, e.g., ‘ “How I pity” ’ written on the design, or contemporary with him, such as ‘ “The Fertilization of Egypt” ’; picture ‘titles’ in lower case letters, such as ‘A female figure walking’, are modern descriptions rather than titles.

The Handlist is presented here with the assistance of Mr. Reginald Williams and with the permission of the Keeper of the Department of Prints and Drawings.

Those who have studied the collection of works by Blake in the past will recognize that this Handlist greatly simplifies and expedites the identification and tracing of Blake’s works.

LOS
	Chap. I
	1: Eno aged Mother.
	Who the chariot of Leutha guides.
	Since the day of thunders in old time
	2: Sitting beneath the eternal Oak
	Trembled and shook the stedfast Earth
	And thus her speech broke forth.
	3: O Times remote!
	When Love & Joy were adoration:
	And none impure were deem’d.
	Not Eyeless Covet
	Nor Thin-lip’d Envy
	Nor Bristled Wrath
	Nor Curled Wantonness
	4: But Covet was poured full:
	Envy fed with fat of lambs:
	Wrath with lions gore:
	Wantonness lulld to sleep
	With the virgins lute.
	Or sated with her love.
	5: Till Covet broke his locks & bars.
	And slept with open doors:
	Envy sung at the rich mans feast:
	Wrath was follow’d up and down
	By a little ewe lamb
	And Wantonness on his own true love
	Begot a giant race:
	6: Raging furious the flames of desire
	Ran thro’ heaven & earth, living flames
	Intelligent, organizd; arm’d
	With destruction & plagues. In the midst
	The Eternal Prophet bound in a chain
	Compell’d to watch Urizens shadow
	7: Rag’d with curses & sparkles of fury
	Round the flames roll as Los hurls
	his chains
	Mounting up from his fury, condens’d
	Rolling round & round. mounting on high
	Into vacuum: into non-entity.
	Where nothing was! dash’d wide apart
	His feet stamp the eternal fierce-raging
	Rivers of wide flame; they roll round
	And round on all sides making their way
	Into darkness and shadowy obscurity
	8: Wide apart stood the fires; Los remain’d
	In the void between fire and fire
	In trembling and horror they beheld him
	They stood wide apart, driv’n by his hands
	And his feet which the nether abyss
	Stamp’d in fury and hot indignation
	9: But no light from the fires all was
	Dark
