Description

Poetical Sketches was the first and only volume of William Blake’s poetry printed in his lifetime. Long unavailable in its entirety as a single volume, this edition is reproduced from an extremely rare copy of the original 1783 book that contains corrections to the printed text handwritten by Blake himself. The writings range from work written in Blake’s twelfth year up to that of his twentieth and are all stamped with his unique vision. This beautiful book also contains an introduction by Robin Hamlyn, who considers the history of the book itself and the place it has in Blake’s pursuit of fame.
