About this Item: The Yellow Barn Press and the University of Maryland at College Park, Council Bluffs, IA and College Park, MD, 1990. Hard Cover. Condition: Fine. Hard Cover. Number 121 of 170 copies. With original leaf from the Golden Legend (pages 759-780 with one six-line initial). The University of Maryland received its William Morris collection from Jack Walsdorf in 1985. It included leaves from a disbound copy of the Kelmscott Press Golden Legend. Each copy of this leaf book by Kelmscott Press scholar William Peterson includes a leaf from that collection. Following Peterson's history of the history and production of the Golden Legend, Walsdorf writes about how he acquired the disbounded leaves. Because these leaves contained autograph marks and typographic dissimilarities with the published Kelmscott version, it suggests that the Walsdorf leaves "may be very late proofs, assembled in the press room, possibly as a first copy of the book" (Foreword). The foreword also includes facsimiles of the original prospectus and a letter to Quaritch from Morris. Frontispiece wood engraving of William Morris by renowned wood engraver John de Pol. Signed on colophon page by Jack Walsdorf, John De Pol, Neil Shaver, William Peterson, and Blanche-Ebeling-Koning (then rare books curator at University of Maryland special collections library). Inserted are a letter to Walsdorf from Donald Farren, then associate director of special collections at the University of Maryland, a short note from Neil Shaver, and an unsigned note saying final book will have a differently worded title. There are also two errata slips. Bound in grey cloth with black and gold spine label. Printed on Batchelor Paper from 1940 with Monotype Bembo type. Press work by Neil Shaver using a Vandercook III. Housed in a black cloth slipcase. In fine condition. 9 x 12 inches. 44 pages. PRI/102318. Seller Inventory # 32496
