Portrait frontispiece, 296 pages, index, (2)pp. publisher ads. A beautiful copy with one of the finest covers designed by Margaret Armstrong. While the Arts and Craft Movement arose from the pre-raphaelites, it never quite equalled Morris's majestic influence. Here we see an art critics' appreciation not only of his poetry but the emphasis on the craftsman "per excellence" whose vision could be achieved in the finest materpieces of book design. Bound in dark blue cloth, decorated in gilt by Margaret Armstrong, decorative gilt spine, top edge gilt.
