Description: Shakespeare, William; Morris, William. THE POEMS OF WILLIAM SHAKESPEARE. Hammersmith: Kelmscott Press, 1893. 8vo (8" x 5.5".) [6], 216, [2] pp. Text in red and black, and featuring 3 elaborately decorated woodcut borders and the Kelmscott woodcut on the limitation page. Bound in publisher's limp vellum with silk ties. Some slight toning to vellum, one tie broken but laid in, bookplate of John Quinn to front pastedown, contents in remarkable condition with quite a few unopened leaves toward the center of the text-block. An excellent example. ************************************* One of 500 copies printed by the celebrated Kelmscott Press. Though the limitation of 500 is relatively high for Kelmscott, the book was quite popular and has become rather difficult to find. The condition of the present example, with several unopened leaves, is notable. [Peterson A11; Sparling 11]
