9781907360510: The Kelmscott Chaucer (Collector's Library Editions)

"The Kelmscott Chaucer" is the most memorable and beautiful edition of the complete works of the first great English poet. Next to "The Gutenberg Bible", it is considered the outstanding typographic achievement of all time. There are 87 full-page illustrations by Sir Edward Burne-Jones, and the borders, decorations and initials are drawn by William Morris himself. Only 425 copies of this magnificent work were produced in 1896, and this beautiful monochrome facsimile, slightly smaller than the original, makes this glorious book available to all. A fascinating Introduction by Nicholas Barker places the book and its importance in context. The main text is followed by a black and white facsimile of A Note by William Morris on his Aims in Founding the Kelmscott Press, together with a Short History of the Press by S C Cockerell. The volume is illustrated with 87 woodcuts by Sir Edward Burne-Jones, and the borders, decorations and initials are drawn by Sir Edward Burne-Jones and William Morris.
