The result of decades of research, this book is scholarly and comprehensive, besides being accessible and highly enlightening."--Jacket
Selected poems by William Blake( Book )
4 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 259 libraries worldwide
"Blake is acclaimed as one of the greatest poets and artists; he is also a fascinating figure in English history. He devised a unique method of self-publishing that combined written text and illustration on the same copperplate. The resulting 'illuminated books', which he printed and coloured himself with the help of his wife, mostly sold in small numbers within a network of admirers. Blake's chief artistic breakthroughs were little known in his lifetime, but from the nineteenth century onwards followers such as Dante Gabriel Rossetti helped to establish his reputation as an artist of outstanding vision and power." "This book explores Blake's creative life and includes interesting anecdotal stories relating to his childhood, married life, his various patrons, and his many sources of inspiration. Illustrated here are some of the best of Blake's books, prints, drawings and illustrations from the collection of the British Museum."--Jacket

The captive of the Castle of Sennaar : an African tale in two parts by George Cumberland( Book )
5 editions published in 1991 in English and held by 152 libraries worldwide
The first part, set on an island in central Africa among descendants of classical Greek civilization, was printed in 1789 but immediately suppressed by Cumberland. A passage describing society everywhere except on the utopian island as oligarchic and unjust was deemed by his lawyer to be potentially seditious; the novel was only published a decade later, and then in revised form. The second part, set in central Africa's Mountains of the Moon among descendants of followers of a fourth-century Christian heretic, is published here for the first time. Cumberland was a widely cultivated and deeply humane dilettante. A poet, painter, distinguished collector of prints and shells, and scientific inventor, he was passionately concerned with the reform of politics and society. He was also friends with some of the best authors and painters of his time, including William Blake, who encouraged Cumberland's ideals. Bentley describes the similarities between Blake's radical analysis of society and his early ideas on free love, sexuality, slavery, natural religion, and energy and the ideals Cumberland espouses in The Captive of the Castle of Sennaar. Bentley provides historical and geographical appendixes, textual and commentary notes, and a comparison of Cumberland's work to Simon Berington's The Memoirs of Signor Gaudentino di Lucca. Bentley's edition of The Captive of the Castle of Sennaar will be of interest to Blake scholars and to students and scholars of utopian literature and late eighteenth-century and Romantic literature and culture
