¶ Hissey — On the box seat (1886)

December 20, 2016

Comments Off on ¶ Hissey — On the box seat (1886)

Hissey, James John. On the box seat from London to Land’s End. London: R. Bentley & Son, 1886.

(We strongly suspect that this is fraudulent, but we include it here with that warning.)

Illustrated. On the front pastedown is an ink-brush design for a printer’s device: a floriated monogram “WM” within a shield surrounded by a ribbon reading “At the Kelmscott Press by me William Morris.” A dealer’s note describes this as “from William Morris’s library, and contains pasted inside cover William Morris’s own pen-and-ink drawing of his bookplate.” Morris of course did not have a bookplate; the small label appearing in most of his books was created after his death by his executors.

Provenance: Morris (?). — Brown University Library (HAY KOOPMAN DA625 .H667).
