Acknowledgments

A project this large and complex would be impossible without the assistance of many individuals and institutions. We will attempt to list here those who have helped us in various ways.

Paul Needham, who has been studying Morris’s older books for decades, has generously given us his very full notes on provenance and locations for the incunables and many of the sixteenth-century titles. We wish to express our appreciation for his unselfish cooperation.

We are likewise grateful to Mark Samuels Lasner, who owns several books from Morris’s library but has also gathered a good deal of information through the years about the books and manuscripts once in the possession of Morris. This material he has kindly put at our disposal.

We also owe a heavy debt to Marie Korey, who has sent us the extensive notes compiled by her late husband, Richard Landon, about the 1898 auction of Morris’s library.
