Mackail, J.W.
Biblia Innocentium: Being the Story of God's Chosen People Before the coming of Our Lord Jesus Christ upon Earth
(Hammersmith: Kelmscott Press, 1892. Octavo. (ii), viii, 250pp. One of 200 copies. Single border and numerous initials by William Morris. The only juvenile book printed by Morris. The copy provides a rare look at the Kelmscott production process, being bound only in cords and without covers, save gatherings of protective paper at the front and rear. It would be, then, ready for any bindery, either for vellum covers as usually issued, or a unique design. Some toning to edges of text block, else near fine. Housed in plain chemise. (Peterson A9).
Bookseller: Bromer Booksellers [United States]
