Footnotes

  • One of 25 copies printed on vellum, from an overall edition of 175. The vellum copies were priced at five guineas, and originally issued in limp vellum. This copy has been rebound in 1904, by Katharine Adams, one of the most acclaimed of the great craft binders of the period, and whose binding for a copy of the Ashendene Press edition of Tutte le Opere di Dante Alighieri was "possibly her finest" (Marianne Tidcombe, Women Bookbinders 1880-1920, 1996). This copy belonged to the poet Percy Withers.
