Catalogue Note

Morris had asked Cockerell to assist in cataloguing his library and intended to produce an illustrated catalogue. This was abandoned after Morris' death although Cockerell decided to use the woodcuts that had already been commissioned for the catalogue together with an article Morris had written. The volume was sold out prior to publication.
