Notes

Limited edition, number LXXV of 75 copies printed on India paper and specially bound in one volume, from a total edition of 1,575 copies. This groundbreaking work provided, for the first time, "a careful and accurate transcription of Blake's poetry" (Whitson and Whittaker, p. 38). "The significance of the Keynes edition cannot be underestimated" (ibid.). It remained the standard text until the Erdman edition 40 years later.
