Description

Here’s a nice set of two little books published by the Thomas Mosher, well known in the early American private press movement. One book is co-written by William Morris of Kelmscott Press. Both books are of a limited edition of 425 and come in individual decorative slipcases with a Morris-style paper design. Printed on Japan vellum at the press of George Loring in Portland, Maine. I cannot find any other copies of these books online in the original slipcases, but believe they are part of the “Brocade Series”; for more info see the Thomas Mosher site here.

Morris, William and Pater, Walter: Some Great Churches in France (1905). 106 pages. 14th edition. Book in very good condition with light wear and soiling. Tight binding. Slipcase fair, with some splitting to edges and a small piece missing at base.
