MORRIS, William; MORRIS, May (Intro.)
William Morris (1834-1896) was an English author of poetry, prose fiction, non-fiction prose, a painter, furniture maker, wall paper designer, and book publisher. He was a member of the famed Pre-Raphaelite Brotherhood, owner of the design firm Morris and Co., and founder of the Kelmscott Press. This volume is part of a limited-edition collection of Morris' works issued by Longmans, Green and Company. This collection is printed in imitation of the standards set by Morris himself with his Kelmscott press and as a founding figure of Victorian Britain's late-nineteenth century Revival of Printing.
