The Story of Sigurd the Volsung and the Fall - Morris (William) - 1877. [1231387]
Ellis and White 1877 - FIRST EDITION, a trifle browned, pp. vii, 392, 8vo, slightly later half blue morocco by Zaehnsdorf, spine gilt with knot patterns, top edges gilt, slight shelf wear to lower edges, custom box, good. The printed paper label on the spine reads incongruously 'William Morris Books' (though the poem is in IV Books). 'Morris's own version of the Icelandic epic, his longest and most ambitious poem . This four-book narrative in resounding rhyming couplets is constructed with the confidence of one of the great Victorian feats of engineering. Sigurd was Morris's own favourite of all his works' (ODNB).
