Enlarged and corrected edition, printed in an edition limited to 750 copies. 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. Near fine.
