Nine Leaves from The History of Reynard the Fox from the Kelmscott Press
by [Kelmscott Press] Caxton, William
Hammersmith: Kelmscott Press, . Very Good. A nice little group of nine leaves from Kelmscott's famous edition of Reynard the Fox. The pages include two copies each of pages 34-35, 139-140, 193-194 and 207-208; and one copy of pages 133-134. There is no evidence that the pages were ever bound, and leaves 207-8 are each folded in opposite ways. One 207-8 leaf has a contemporary signature of William Copeland Borlase, "Borlase, WC" but is oddly dated 1877.One of the copies of pages 139-40 has a contemporary ink note at top "Acton (Lord) Catalogue, and one of the pages 208 copies has "Austin Stephen" written in at the bottom and upside down. With several large initials and decorations, In Troy type of Flower paper. There is some soiling and browning to the leaves, and closed tears to page 193 but still a very good collection that would be ideal for teaching purposes. PRI/042116.
