Prospectus;1; E692| The Labours of the Artist, the Poet, the Musician, have been
Prospectus;1; E692| proverbially attended by poverty and obscurity; this was never
Prospectus;1; E692| the fault of the Public, but was owing to a neglect of means to
Prospectus;1; E692| propagate such works as have wholly absorbed the Man of Genius.
Prospectus;1; E692| Even Milton and Shakespeare could not publish their own works.
Prospectus;2; E692| This difficulty has been obviated by the Author of the
Prospectus;2; E692| following productions now presented to the Public; who has
Prospectus;2; E692| invented a method of Printing both Letter-press and Engraving in
Prospectus;2; E692| a style more ornamental, uniform, and grand, than any before
Prospectus;2; E692| discovered, while it produces works at less than one fourth of
Prospectus;2; E692| the expense.
Prospectus;3; E692| If a method of Printing which combines the Painter and the
Prospectus;3; E692| Poet is a phenomenon worthy of public attention, provided that it
Prospectus;3; E692| exceeds in elegance all former methods, the Author is sure of his
Prospectus;3; E692| reward.
Prospectus;4; E692| Mr. Blake's powers of invention very early engaged the
Prospectus;4; E692| attention of many persons of eminence and fortune; by whose means
Prospectus;4; E692| he has been regularly enabled to bring before the Public works
Prospectus;4; E692| (he is not afraid to say) of equal magnitude and consequence with
Prospectus;4; E692| the productions of any age or country: among which are two large
Prospectus;4; E692| highly finished engravings (and two more are nearly ready) which
Prospectus;4; E692| will commence a Series of subjects from the Bible, and another
Prospectus;4; E692| from the History of England.

OnMalkin; E693| They are all firm, determinate outline, or identical form.
OnMalkin; E693| Had the hand which executed these little ideas been that of a
OnMalkin; E693| plagiary, who works only from the memory, we should have seen
OnMalkin; E693| blots, called masses; blots without form, and therefore without
OnMalkin; E693| meaning. These blots of light and dark, as being the result of
OnMalkin; E693| labour, are always clumsy and indefinite; the effect of rubbing
OnMalkin; E693| out and putting in, like the progress of a blind man, or of one
OnMalkin; E693| in the dark, who feels his way, but does not see it. These are
OnMalkin; E693| not so. Even the copy from Raphael's Cartoon of St. Paul
OnMalkin; E693| preaching, is a firm, determinate outline, struck at once, as
OnMalkin; E693| Protogenes struck his line, when he meant to make himself known
OnMalkin; E693| to Apelles. The map of Allestone has the same character of the
OnMalkin; E693| firm and determinate. All his efforts prove this little boy to
OnMalkin; E693| have had that greatest of all blessings, a strong imagination, a
OnMalkin; E693| clear idea, and a determinate vision of things in his own mind.

N-Bells8'11; E695| of ail artist yet he considers them as Chaste delineations of
