I ordered this book and was very disappointed: it only contained the transcripted poems. No pictures of the coloured plates, no commentaries and interpretations by Robert N. Essick. No Bibliography or Index either. Barnes and Noble descriptions shown with this books are clearly misleading and should be removed. This is a cheap edition of the poems only and is not worth purchasing. Some of the poems are very hard to understand without the proper historical context and explanations to the worldview of William Blake.
