The masterpiece of the Kelmscott Press: an outstanding example of typography and book production.

This copy is one of 48 copies specially bound at the Doves Bindery to a design by William Morris (see William S. Peterson, A Bibliography of The Kelmscott Press, Oxford, 1984, p.106). Marianne Tidcombe has suggested that this figure is "presumably... the number of bindings commissioned when the books were ordered... more than a few copies were bound after Douglas Cockerell left the bindery [in November 1897]" (Tidcombe, The Doves Bindery, London, 1991, p.51). Given that this copy is stamped by the bindery in 1896 it comprises one of the original bindings at the time of production.
