The Floure & The Leafe; The Cuckow and the Nightingale
Hammersmith: Kelmscott Press, 1896. Hard Cover. Very Good. Hard Cover. 1 of 300 paper copies. Both poems were once attributed to Chaucer, but 'The Floure and the Leafe' is now known to be much later and 'The Cuckow and the Nightingale' is by Sir Thomas Clanyowe. In his Kelmscott Press Bibliography Peterson notes: The first bound copy of this book arrived at Kelmscott House an hour or two before Morris's death. Bound in the original linen backed blue paper covered boards with black title to front cover. There is a light dampstain to the front cover, light browning to edges, minor edgewear, and a few spots of foxing to the rear board. The cloth spine is rubbed with fraying in a few places. The interior remains clean and bright. Printed on Apple paper in Troy type with two large initial letters which were previously used in the Kelmscott Chaucer. The typeface and initials were designed by William Morris. 47 pages. PRI/011513.
