First edition, limited to 325 numbered copies. Printed on mouldmade Hahnemuhle paper. Hans and Tanya Schmoller found a cache of Chinese tea chest (or tinsel) paper in England that had been in storage for fifty years. This very colorful paper is no longer being manufactured. The book reprints much of the correspondence between Morris and Schmoller on the production of this book that occurred before Schmoller's death. His wife Tanya took the notes that he had written and produced the essay on the paper which follows the correspondence. The samples (mostly 6 x 8.5 inches) are the best of the large lot and have been treated by Morris to prevent further oxidation or degradation. Original prospectus loosely inserted.
