First edition. The Samurai Press was founded in 1906 at Ranworth Hall, near Norwich, by Maurice Browne, Harold Marno, and others, with the object of publishing attractive and moderately-priced works of a transcendental nature, chiefly poetry, by young, aspiring, and little-known authors. The Press published 30 books during its lifetime, some of which were hand-printed on the press that was later to be used by Douglas Pepler and Eric Gill at St. Dominic's Press at Ditchling.

This bibliography describes each book published by the Press with a photograph of each title page. Descriptions of Samurai Press catalogues, flyers and other ephemera are provided as well as ghosts, books planned but not published, and books of other publishers listed in Samurai Press catalogues but not so identified.
