Summary
"This volume reproduces two of Blake's visionary masterpieces. America: A Prophecy (1793/4) was inspired by the American Revolution, which Blake endowed with symbolic and universal meaning. Europe: A Prophecy (1794) depicts how man first became subject to the laws of repressive religion and morality. Dover's edition of these works is based on extremely rare, priceless originals engraved and hand-colored by Blake himself. There are typeset summaries of text and illustrations drawn from the critical writings of eminent Blake scholars"--Back cover
