Editorial: Hammersmith: Kelmscott Press, 1894
Año de publicación: 1894
Quarto. Original limp vellum, title to spine gilt, silk ties (broken). Bookplate of the celebrated book collector William Harris Arnold. Lightly rubbed, a very good copy. Printed in red and black with elaborate woodcut title page and woodcut initials and borders throughout. One of 250 copies on paper. Swinburne was a warm admirer of the Kelmscott Press books. "When Atalanta (which was first published in 1865) was reprinted by Morris, Swinburne wrote to him that it was 'certainly one of the loveliest examples of even your incomparable press'" (quoted in Peterson). The Greek type used for the quotations and dedicatory poems was designed by Selwyn Image, with the technical assistance of Emery Walker, the only instance in the Kelmscott Press books of Morris using a type not designed by himself.
