A small abrasion to the limp vellum near the top front tie. Very small red ink stains near the lower front vellum panel and also near the bottom edge of the rear panel. The ends of the silk ties are free of any wear or freying. The second of only two Kelmscott publications printed in three colors: red, black, and blue. Set in Troy and Chaucer type designed by Morris. Finely illustrated with a full page frontispiece and a full page illustration at the and of the text engraved by W.H. Hooper after the designs of Sir Edward Burne-Jones. Ornamented with many boarders and initial letters throughout. One of Morris' most handsomest books.
