§ Essential reading and reference material not easily found anywhere else. From the website: “[It] was born as the Blake Newsletter on a mimeograph machine at the University of California, Berkeley in 1967. Edited by Morton D. Paley, the first issue ran to nine pages, was available for a yearly subscription rate of two dollars for four issues, and included the fateful words, "As far as editorial policy is concerned, I think the Newsletter should be just that—not an incipient journal." The production office of the Newsletter relocated to the University of New Mexico when Morris Eaves became co-editor in 1970, and then moved with him in 1986 to its present home at the University of Rochester.” In June 1977 (vol. XI, no. 1) it became Blake An Illustrated Quarterly, marking its emergence from a slight newsletter to a full-fledged illustrated magazine of great usefulness for Blake scholars and researchers.
