This is our fifth checklist, and the aim and format are basically the same as for the checklists of the past two years.* The list is divided into these categories: New and Revised Books/Reprinted Books/Articles and Sections of Books/Reviews/Films/Phonograph Records. Again this year we have included entries for items that are not scholarly, and again we have listed items whose dates fall far outside our nominal August 1972-September 1973 boundaries.

As always, we would appreciate corrections and additions from our readers. But we would especially like to appeal for help in compiling the checklist for next year. We do our best to cover all journals and other periodicals, but our comprehensiveness depends to a much greater extent on our readers than most of them realize, especially for out-of-the-way material. We want to list everything of interest, including newspaper articles, filmstrips, videotapes, and ephemera. We are particularly grateful to authors who send offprints for the checklist, because recent copies of journals can take a long time to reach the shelves of the library. Past experience shows that the categories we are most likely to miss are book reviews, sections of books whose titles do not mention Blake, and material in foreign languages. Please keep us in mind when you run across items that should be in the checklist.
