Blake's London: The Topographic Sublime.
London: The Swedenborg Society, 2012. Small 8vo, xi, 60 pp.As new, in gray paper covered boards, and dust-jacket. Second edition (2000 copies) - the first was 2011. The book consists of the transcript of a talk presented by Sinclair to a one-day conference on "Blake in Context" held on 2nd November 2007, commemorating the 250th Anniversary of Blake's birth, jointly convened by The Swedenborg Society and the University of London(Goldsmiths College). It is an impressionistic account of how landscape and topography can influence artists rather than a scholarly analysis, though Sinclair refers to many of the elements in Blake's London, some as they can be seen today.
