Two quarto volumes, plus a portfolio. xiv, 36, 26; (v), 92pp. From an edition of 500 copies, this is one of 130 deluxe copies bound in full blue morocco by Sangorski & Sutcliffe, with an accompanying portfolio of plates. In 1865 William Morris and Edward Burne-Jones began work on an edition of Cupid and Psyche and, for want of an appropriate typeface, did not complete it. Nonetheless, Burne-Jones had completed fifty drawings and Morris had cut the blocks for at least thirty-eight of them. The existence of these woodblocks was brought to the attention of Will and Sebastian Carter of the Rampant Lions Press by Colin Franklin. They decided to print an edition using Morris's Troy type, which was made available by Brooke Crutchley. The current edition is the result and is as close as one can hope to get to the original intent of Morris and Burne-Jones. Volume I is a monograph by A.R. Dufty, secretary of the Society of Antiquaries of London (owner of the original woodblocks), with plates of Burne-Jones' preparatory drawings. Volume II contains the text of Cupid and Psyche printed in Morris's Troy type, with illustrations from the original blocks, printed on J. Green mould-made paper. The portfolio contains collotypes of 47 original drawings and proofs pulled from the 44 extant engravings. Slipcase shows light toning, minor rubbing to spine ends of portfolio case, else fine.
