"The 81 plates are dated Dec. 1792, Dec. 1793, Dec. 1794, and Dec. 1795, and 39 have no engraver's name. Thirteen are signed "Blake Sculpt."; besides these, GEB & Keynes (1921) are confident that Blake also engraved the plates opposite volume 1, page 227; volume 2, page 104; and volume 2, page 296, which are not signed."--Cf. Bentley.

Of the other sixty-five plates 13 are signed by Barlow, 7 by T. Conder, 3 by Bartolozzi, 2 each by Benedetti and A. Smith, and 1 each by T. Holloway and Perry.
