MORRIS, William The Collected Works of William Morris With Introductions by his Daughter, May Morris

Longmans, Green & Co, London, 1910.

Twenty-four volumes. 8vo. Limited to 1,050 numbered copies (of which 1,000 only are for sale), this set is number 720. Original holland-backed blue boards with printed paper labels on spines. All edges uncut. Spare labels tipped in at front. Each volume with a photogravure frontispiece. Plates include facsimiles (one colour) and examples of Kelmscott type and borders, folding map at end of volume 8. A very good set indeed, with slight chipping to some labels and marginal browning to the spines. The overall appearance is attractive, each volume being clean and tight.

This is a lovely set of the definitive edition of Morris' work, printed on good quality paper and with a large, bold type. The set includes the poetical works, prose romances and essays on art and politics as well as Morris's translations from the classics, Early English, French and Icelandic Sagas. His daughter's introductions to each volume chart the development of Morris's literary, aesthetic and political passions.
