¶ Homer — Iliad (1841)

May 17, 2017

Comments Off on ¶ Homer — Iliad (1841)

Homer. The first six books of Homer’s Iliad, with an interpaged translation. London: printed for Taylor and Walton, 1841.

The MS catalogue (2) identifies this only as an edition of the Iliad published in London in 1841; we think this is the most likely candidate, though the MS catalogue also specifies that it is two volumes. The second volume may refer to the second edition of The first six books of Virgil’s Aeneid, with an interpaged translation, issued in a similar format by the same publisher in 1841.

Provenance: Morris. — Unlocated.

¶ Rogers — Poems (1812)

May 10, 2017

Comments Off on ¶ Rogers — Poems (1812)

Rogers, Samuel. Poems. London: printed by T. Bensley for T. Cadell and W. Davies, 1812.

Illustrated by Thomas Stothard. Substitute title-page, drawn in pen and ink. The Huntington Library believes the book was owned by Morris, but we are not convinced, because the bookplate (reproduced below) does not resemble anything that Morris is known to have used. Nevertheless, we are listing it here for possible further investigation.

Provenance: E. E. Baker (?). — Morris (?). — John Fletcher Hurst. — Hurst sale, part 2, Anderson Auction Company (New York), 1905, lot 3277 [HathiTrust]. — Huntington Library (23971).

¶ Hissey — On the box seat (1886)

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.
