About the Author
Painter, printer, and poet, William Blake (1757-1827) was a master at expressing great literature through his art. Perhaps the finest engraver in English history, Blake's illuminated books filled with sketches and watercolors that boggle the mind with their beauty and detail are as sought after today as they were over a hundred years ago.
Most Helpful Customer Reviews
I bought this because I wanted William Blake's book of poems with the original illustrations. This SAYS it has them, and it does. . . For the firs poem only. In fact, it only has one poem period. That and the table of contents make up six pages.
