To celebrate the Morris centenary year, the Grolier Club and the William Morris Society in the United States published this enlarged and corrected version of the very last book published by the Kelmscott Press. This autobiographical history of Morris and his Kelmscott Press includes passages related to Morris's approaches to paper, type design, ink, page design and ornament, and book illustration. The annotated listing of the 53 titles, originally compiled by Sydney Cockerell, is enhanced by the editorial modifications made in this edition that record all of Cockerell's known revisions and second thoughts. A short description of the press by C. Cockerell and seven full-page facsimiles are included. It was designed and typeset by William S. Peterson and printed letterpress at the Stinehour Press. The book was published in conjunction with the exhibition held from December 10, 1996 to February 15, 1997.
