About this Item: Kelmscott Press, London, 1892. Cloth. Condition: Good-. No Jacket. Burne-Jones, Edward; Morris, William (illustrator). First Edition. This iconic set from the Arts and Crafts era was an early production of the Kelmscott Press under the artistic direction of William Morris. Having recently acquired the Caxton text in a reprinted edition of the 13th century lives of the Saints and Miracles, Morris wanted to proiduce a modern reprint with the knowledge gained from research and using the original printing techniques. 3 Volumes, cloth spine with paper over boards, no dust jackets as released. all three volumes are in Good- condition; The spine labels for two volumes are missing. There is evidence of fluid damage on the spines which may be partially from original binding approach. These book were always intended to be custom bound after publication, the existing bindings were always recognized as temporary. Th interiors are all pristine except for 2 former owner's bookplates on the endpapers. All interior illustrations are present and clean. There are two illustrations/ illuminations by Edward Burne-Jones and the magnificent title pages were the first done by Morris. The Kelmscott Colophon is on the last page of Volume 3, and the printed slip asking any possible re-binders not to trim the pages or put the volumes in a press so as not to destroy what Kelmscott worked so hard to replicate from medieval printing.

About this Item: Upper Mall Hammersmith; The Kelmscott Press sold by Bernard Quaritch 15 Piccadilly, 1892. Three volumes 4to [text block 295 x 210mm], publisher's canvas (holland) backed pale blue paper covered boards, printed paper labels. Printed slip tipped-in on fly-leaf before half-title 'If this book be bound the edges of the leaves should only be TRIMMED, not cut.

Of the fifty-three books published by the press between 1891 and 1898 this was intended to be the first but, because of a delay caused by a problem with the paper size, it was the seventh issued. Sawyer & Darton, English Books 1475-1900: Morris 'christened the first fount the 'Golden', type, from The Golden Legend, for which work it was designed.The fount consists of eighty-one designs.The title and two woodcuts were designed by Sir Edward Burne-Jones, Morris's old Oxford friend. It is one of the most handsome and desirable of the Kelmscott books.The Troy type [the second of four founts designed by Morris] was used to print the title labels, which are glued to the canvas backs.the first appearance of the type.' [See also Roderick Cave, 'The Private Press' for a good description of the origins of the press; William S. Peterson: A Bibliography of the Kelmscott Press, A7]. The canvas spines are very browned and splitting; hinges split, those to volumes 1 and 3 nearly broken; labels browned, chipped and split; text block edges browned; contents near fine. Two armorial bookplates on all volumes: on the front pastedowns: that of Henry Martin Gibbs of Barrow Court, Somerset, dated 1891; on the front free endpapers that of Walter Henry James. Tipped-in on front fly-leaf volume 1 a cutting from the Sotheby auction catalogue for July 29th, 1957, lot 224 describing this book, The Property of the Rt. hon. Lord Northbourne, and a pencilled note in margin 'This copy'. Each volume now secure in a strong, well-made, if inelegant, drop-boxes, pale brown cloth, simple black leather lettering piece, gilt. A slightly corrected edition, described in some detail in a memoranda by the editor in volume 3, of Caxton's edition of 1483. The 'Golden Legend' was Caxton's magnum opus, a translation into English of the French version of the 'Legenda Aurea' of de Voragine, Archbishop of Genoa. It consists of the lives of Saints together with much legendary matter plus Scripture. As the work had received a Papal blessing Caxton risked nothing by bringing out a translation. The introduction to the Holbein Society's 400th anniversary book on 'The Golden Legend' states: "We have seen that Caxton dare not print the Bible, with avowed intent; but under the guise of legendary stories, he smuggled into his book a great part of the text of the Sacred Writings. To such an extent has this been carried, that in the Caxton Celebration Catalogue.the Golden Legend was included in the list of Bibles; 'because', says Mr Henry Stevens, who had charge of that department, 'it contains a translation into English of nearly the whole of the Pentateuch, and a great part of the gospels.it was no doubt read in churches, and though the text is mixed with much priestly gloss and dross, it nevertheless contains, in almost literal translation, a great portion of the Bible; and it became thus one of the principal instruments in preparing the way for the Reformation.".
