A groundbreaking fantasy novel, The Wood Beyond the World tells the story of a young man, Golden Walter, who finds himself in a strange and frightening world after being abandoned by his wife and lost at sea. The novel takes the form of Walter's quest for the visionary Maid that he sees at the beginning of his journey, and takes him from his failed marriage through temptation to fulfillment. Set in Morris's imaginative recreation of a medieval world, the novel is full of vivid imagery and surprising emotional realism

The nature of Gothic : a chapter of the Stones of Venice by John Ruskin( Book )

1 edition published in 1892 in English and held by 102 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In its indictment of meaningless modern labour and its celebration of medieval architecture, The Nature of Gothic could be called the foundation stone of Morris's aesthetic and purpose in life. Forty years after he first read it, Morris chose Ruskin's test for one of the first books to be published at his Kelmscott Press, using his own Golden type ... The Kelmscott Nature of Gothic encapsulates the meeting of two remarkable minds and embodies their influence on word, image and design"--Page 4 of cover

Sidonia the sorceress by Wilhelm Meinhold( Book )

1 edition published in 1893 in English and held by 85 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In this novel, the character of Sidonia is based upon the real-life Sidonia von Borcke, an Eastern European noblewoman from the early 17th century who was tried and convicted of witchcraft and burned at the stake. As versions of the story were passed down over the years, Sidonia was represented as more of a femme fatale character. Wilhelm Mienhold's telling of the Sidonia story, first published in German in 1848, fascinated the English Pre-Raphaelite artists and gained something of a cult following in Victorian Britain. Edward Burne-Jones depicted Sidonia in one of his paintings from 1860, and this beautiful volume, translated by Lady Wilde (Oscar Wilde's mother), was printed by William Morris at his Kelmscott Press
A dream of John Ball ; and, A king's lesson by William Morris( Book )

2 editions published in 1892 in English and held by 85 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This early work by William Morris was originally published in 1886 and we are now republishing it with a brand new introductory biography. William Morris was born in London, England in 1834. Arguably best known as a textile designer, he founded a design partnership which deeply influenced the decoration of churches and homes during the early 20th century. However, he is also considered an important Romantic writer and pioneer of the modern fantasy genre, being a direct influence on authors such as J. R. R. Tolkien. As well as fiction, Morris penned poetry and essays. We are republishing these classic works in affordable, high quality, modern editions, using the original text and artwork
