This is 1 of 500 paper copies with no vellum copies issued. of the Golden Legend . Morris intended for this to be the very first book printed at the Kelmscott Press; however, due to the length and an issue with sufficient paper supply, the project was postponed. As Morris did not own CaxtonÕs 1493 translation of the Golden Legend and no complete modern reprints existed, Ellis arranged to borrow a copy from the Cambridge University Library for transcription by his daughter. Morris, Jones and Ellis collaborated on many other Kelmscott volumes, including the Chaucer. [Peterson Bibliography, A7] There are two exquisite full page woodcuts by Edward Burne-Jones in Volume I and there are beautiful woodcut initials throughout.
