The Floure and the Leafe, & the Boke of Cupide, God of Love, or the Cuckow and the Nightingale
(Hammersmith: Kelmscott Press, 1896). Octavo. (ii), 47pp. One of 310 copies. Edited by F. S. Ellis, the London publisher and scholar who was closely associated with William Morris, having published a number of Morris's own works, such as The Earthly Paradise and Völsung Saga. Both early fifteenth-century poems had originally been attributed to Chaucer. A beautiful book, with titles printed in red and two half-page floral initials, used first in the Kelmscott Chaucer. Lower corners very lightly bumped, else fine in original cloth-backed printed blue-gray boards.
