Introduction

The checklist includes works by William Blake and works closely related to Blake’s oeuvre collected by Lessing J. Rosenwald. Currently housed at Alverthorpe Gallery, Jenkintown, Pennsylvania, most of the items are part of the collections of the Library of Congress and the National Gallery of Art, Washington, D. C. A few items remain in the private collection of Mr. Rosenwald.

Without assistance from numerous persons, the problems of compiling the checklist would have been magnified. Sincere appreciation is extended to the following: Martin Butlin, Larry Day, Robert N. Essick, and Lois Fern, who repeatedly offered information and advice; at Alverthorpe Gallery: Elizabeth J. Glassman, Kathleen T. Hunt, Florence H. Larson, Mildred C. Mackie, Anthony Rosati, Florence R. Schmidt, and Starr Siegle; at the Library of Congress: Thomas D. Burney and William Matheson; at the National Gallery: Peter Davidock and H. Diane Russell; at the University of New Mexico: Morris Eaves, Corinne Henning, Virginia Masi, and David Schnur.

Most importantly, appreciation goes to Lessing J. Rosenwald, whose farsightedness and generosity as a collector have made the checklist both necessary and possible. R.L.
