Blake Records Supplement is a continuation of Blake Records (Clarendon Press, 1969), which attempted to collect and publish every reference made to William Blake by his contemporaries. The new book incorporates the wealth of information that has been found since 1969 in letters, advertisements, essays and journals, including references to Blake's musical ability, further evidence of R.H. Cromek's duplicity in dealing with the illustrations for Blair's Grave, letters from Blake's wife, new evidence about his trial for sedition, and comments about his purported madness. Together, the works provide the foundation for all we know about the life of the poet and artist.
