The marriage of heaven and hell by William Blake( Book )

186 editions published between 1790 and 2014 in 5 languages and held by 2,429 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"No work has challenged its readers like Blake's The Marriage of Heaven and Hell. The 'Proverbs of Hell' have been culled for the slogans of student protest and become axioms of modern thought. Iconoclastic, bizarre, unprecedented, it is all of these. Most extraordinary is the revolutionary method of its making. The Bodleian Library copy is one of the first that Blake printed using the method he called 'Illuminated Printing' and the only work in which he signifies its importance. This new edition includes a complete facsimile of the work, together with a transcript, and a plate-by-plate guide to the text, the interlinear figures, and the larger designs. In a special comparative section, the same plate from each of the other eight surviving copies is also reproduced."--Page 4 of cover

"This volume reproduces two of Blake's visionary masterpieces. America: A Prophecy (1793/4) was inspired by the American Revolution, which Blake endowed with symbolic and universal meaning. Europe: A Prophecy (1794) depicts how man first became subject to the laws of repressive religion and morality. Dover's edition of these works is based on extremely rare, priceless originals engraved and hand-colored by Blake himself. There are typeset summaries of text and illustrations drawn from the critical writings of eminent Blake scholars"--Back cover

The paintings of William Blake by Raymond Lister( Book )

4 editions published between 1925 and 1986 in English and held by 772 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This is the most accessible introduction available to one of the greatest British artists. The art of William Blake unites visionary simplicity with profound complexity of thought. In this illuminating new study, illustrated throughout in colour, Raymond Lister provides an engaging and lucid approach to Blake's paintings, fully alive to their infinite power of suggestion and refreshingly unfettered by polemic. The biographical introduction, making extensive use of Blake's writings and of contemporary accounts of him, traces the vicissitudes of this absolutely individual artist's life; his very human nature is revealed, no less than his boundless creative energies. The seventy-five colour plates represent the whole span of Blake's working life and all the major areas of his art: his biblical pictures, his allegorical subjects and his illuminated books, which he wrote, engraved and decorated himself. The detailed commentary to each plate explores as much of his symbolism as is readily comprehensible, and explains his often idiosyncratic techniques. - Publisher's note

"More than a century-and-a-half after his death, William Blake remains a truly remarkable and controversial figure. Equally gifted as poet and painter, he produced work as arresting for its beauty as for its strangeness. William Vaughan explores the contradictions that stand in the way of an easy understanding of the artist's work
