About this Item: Pr. by William Morris at the Kelmscott Press, [colophon: Hammersmith, 1893. Lovely example of a Kelmscott small-format press production: the first of a series of four medieval French romances both translated and printed by Morris, this one about the lovely and virtuous but cruelly defamed Jehane, who regains her good name by masquerading as her husband's squire. Morris printed a total of 365 copies, 350 of which were on paper, as is this example; the opening double-page spread features one of his unmistakable white-on-black grapevine borders, and the subsequent black-letter text is highlighted with decorative capitals and with subject headings printed in red. Binding: Stunning signed binding by Leonard Mounteney, exhibition finisher for Rivi?re & Son: full green levant morocco, covers and spine lavishly gilt-tooled with red morocco floral onlays. Board edges with gilt roll; inside, gilt dentelles and doublures of red watered silk. Top edge gilt. 12mo (15 cm, 5.9"). [4], 96, [2] pp. Peterson, Kelmscott Press, A21; NCBEL, III, 568. Uncut copy. Binding as above, spine slightly darkened with rubbing to raised bands; in later and thoroughly fresh marbled paper?covered slipcase. Original blue paper wrappers bound in. => A jewel to be treasured. Seller Inventory # 35018
