Comments Off on ¶ Duff — Early printed books (1893)

Duff, E. Gordon. Early printed books. London: Kegan Paul, Trench, Trübner & Co., 1893.

Unsigned note—attributed to Emery Walker by Philip Hofer—on front pastedown: “This belonged to a little collection of printed books which Morris kept at the Press (at 21 Upper Mall, Hammersmith) for the use of his printers.” With the Morris book label, so it may have passed through the 1898 Sotheby sale (though it is not listed in that catalogue).

Provenance: Morris. — Richard Bennett (?). — Sotheby 1898 (?). — Houghton Library, Harvard University (Typ 805.93.3404).

Digital version: Wellcome Library (Morris’s other copy at the Wellcome Library).
