As we promised last year, this edition of the checklist of recent scholarship on Blake and his circle incorporates several modifications that will, we hope, help to make it more useful. We have increased the amount of annotation and have set items on Blake’s circle into a separate section. Works that treat Blake and one or more of his circle are listed in Part I, “William Blake,” and cross-referenced in Part II, “Blake’s Circle.”

By the time this year’s checklist is published, several important (but at this writing still imminent) works may be available to Blake’s public. However near to publication they may be, we do not include them here, though we look forward eagerly to Butlin’s catalogue and the Night Thoughts of Erdman, Grant, and Tolley, among other major forthcoming works.

Authors whom we have overlooked are encouraged to bring unnoted items to our attention. I’d like to extend a special word of thanks to Ray Thompson (of Columbus, Ohio) for passing on several important items, and to G. E. Bentley, Jr., for continuing helpful correspondence.
