The works of Geoffrey Chaucer : a facsimile of the William Morris Kelmscott Chaucer by Geoffrey Chaucer( Book )

6 editions published between 1958 and 2007 in English and English, Middle and held by 740 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

""The Kelmscott Chaucer" is the most memorable and beautiful edition of the complete works of the first great English poet. Next to "The Gutenberg Bible", it is considered the outstanding typographic achievement of all time. There are 87 full-page illustrations by Sir Edward Burne-Jones, and the borders, decorations and initials are drawn by William Morris himself. Only 425 copies of this magnificent work were produced in 1896, and this beautiful monochrome facsimile, slightly smaller than the original, makes this glorious book available to all. A fascinating Introduction by Nicholas Barker places the book and its importance in context. The main text is followed by a black and white facsimile of A Note by William Morris on his Aims in Founding the Kelmscott Press, together with a Short History of the Press by S C Cockerell. The volume is illustrated with 87 woodcuts by Sir Edward Burne-Jones, and the borders, decorations and initials are drawn by Sir Edward Burne-Jones and William Morris."--Publisher description
Edward Burne-Jones, Victorian artist-dreamer by Stephen Wildman( Book )

9 editions published in 1998 in English and Italian and held by 724 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A pupil of Dante Gabriel Rossetti and a protege of John Ruskin, Burne-Jones belonged to the second generation of the Pre-Raphaelite Brotherhood, creating a narrative style of romantic symbolism steeped in medieval legend and fused with the influence of Italian Renaissance masters that was to have widespread influence on both British and European art. Within the sophisticated culture of the late Victorian period, Burne-Jones's star rose rapidly, and by the 1880s he had become the establishment artist par excellence, one of the most admired and sought-after painters in Europe

Burne-Jones : the life and works of Sir Edward Burne-Jones (1833-1898) by Christopher Wood( Book )

4 editions published in 1998 in English and held by 439 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Burne-Jones was one of the most important artist of the second phase of the Pre-Raphaelite movement and one of the greatest of all English romantic painters. Through his lifelong association with William Morris he was also a prolific designer of stained glass, tapestries, tiles, mosaics, books and furniture. He was therefore a key figure in both the Aesthetic and the Arts and Crafts movements." "In this authoritative new book, in which five of Burne-Jones's series of pictures and tapestries are reproduced in full for the first time (other than in catalogs), the true glory of the artist's vision and range are made accessible. His personal charm, conveyed whimsically in the caricatures with which he illustrated his voluminous correspondence, together with his relationships with his family and also with his beautiful mistress, Maria Zambaco, are revealed, and his position in the context not only of the Pre-Raphaelites, but also of the wider European stage and the symbolist movement, is thoroughly analyzed."--Jacket
William Morris and Edward Burne-Jones : interlacings by Caroline Arscott( Book )

3 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 324 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In this book, Caroline Arscott explores particular aspects of the paintings of Edward Burne-Jones and the designs of William Morris and concludes that there are close interconnections in theme, allusion, and formal strategy between the works of the two men. She suggests that themes of bodily pain, desire and appetite are central to their vision. Through careful readings of Burne-Jones's painting and Morris's designs for printed wallpapers and textiles, she shows that it is possible to bring together fine art and design in a linked discussion that illuminates the projects of both artists."--Jacket

The wood beyond the world by William Morris( Book )

4 editions published between 1894 and 2014 in English and held by 111 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

William Morris was born in Walthamstow, London on 24th March 1834 he is regarded today as a foremost poet, writer, textile designer, artist and libertarian. Morris began to publish poetry and short stories in 1856 through the Oxford and Cambridge Magazine which he founded with his friends and financed while at university. His first volume, in 1858, The Defence of Guenevere and Other Poems, was the first published book of Pre-Raphaelite poetry. Due to its luke warm reception he was discouraged from poetry writing for a number of years. His return to poetry was with the great success of The Life and Death of Jason in 1867, which was followed by The Earthly Paradise, themed around a group of medieval wanderers searching for a land of everlasting life; after much disillusion, they discover a surviving colony of Greeks with whom they exchange stories. In the collection are retellings of Icelandic sagas. From then until his Socialist period Morris's fascination with the ancient Germanic and Norse peoples dominated his writing being the first to translate many of the Icelandic sagas into English; the epic retelling of the story of Sigurd the Volsung being his favourite. In 1884 he founded the Socialist League but with the rise of the Anarachists in the party he left it in 1890. In 1891 he founded the Kelmscott Press publishing limited edition illuminated style books. His design for The Works of Geoffrey Chaucer is a masterpiece. Morris was quietly approached with an offer of the Poet Laureateship after the death of Tennyson in 1892, but declined. William Morris died at age 62 on 3rd October 1896 in London. Here we present The Wood Beyond the World
