SOME THOUGHTS ON THE ORNAMENTED MSS. OF THE MIDDLE AGES.
by Morris, William.
One of "a modest number of copies (beside four on vellum) have been printed" by this famous press to commemorate the 100th anniversary of Morris's death. Printed on Morris' Albion Hand Press th was used to print his Kelmscott Chaucer (The Press of the Wooly Whale, 27). It also tells of the travels of that press up to 1934. The illustration of the Press used on the embossed covers and as a head ornament on the first page of text, was carefully drawn by Warren Chappell. Melbert Cary wrote an acknowledgement at the beginning of the book. Slight foxing of vellum at spine ends. Still protected with remnants of glassine wrappers.
