THE FIRST KELMSCOTT PRESS BOOK

MORRIS, William The Story of the Glittering Plain Which has been also called The Land of Living Men or The Acre of the Undying

Kelmscott Press, 1891.

One of 200 copies. Original vellum, yapp fore-edge and ribbon ties. Hand made paper. Pictorial title page with ornamental borders. Wood cut initials. A very good copy indeed, very slight dustiness to the vellum.

The first book to come from Morris's Kelmscott Press. The printing of the 200 copies was completed in April and completely sold out by July. The story is a fantasy novel, which not only influenced the writings of J.R.R. Tolkien, but which remains accessible to modern day readers.
