    A Superb Set of the Works of William Morris

    William Morris. The Collected Works of William Morris. With introductions by his daughter May Morris. London: Longmans Green and Company, 1910-1915. Limited to 1,050 numbered copies (of which 1,000 only are for sale). Twenty-four octavo volumes. Photogravure frontispieces and plates (by Emery Walker and Walker & Boutall), facsimiles (one color) and examples of Kelmscott type and borders, maps (some folding). Original holland-backed boards with printed paper labels on spines. Top edges trimmed or rough trimmed, other edges uncut. Light soiling or foxing to some bindings, a bit of dust soiling to top edges, a few paper labels lightly stained or scuffed, many volumes with sheets partially unopened. A very good set. "The present volumes, beautiful in every detail, are first and last meant to be read. It would be hard to beat them. Paper and type are perfect. In shape, size and weight, these volumes give the reader ease and give him pleasure" (Walsdorf 113, quoting from a 1914-1915 A.C. McClurg & Co. catalogue). From the Pre-Raphaelite Collection of William E. Fredeman.
