The Poetical Works of Percy Bysshe Shelley
(Hammersmith: Kelmscott Press, 1895). Three octavo volumes. 399; 412; 421pp. One of 250 copies. Ornate wood-engraved double-page opening in Volume I and initials and borders throughout the three volumes by William Morris. In a letter to a friend in 1855, William Morris wrote that he had just been reading Shelley's works and that he liked what he had read very much. He was particularly impressed by the poet's ode "To a Skylark," writing, "WHAT a gorgeous thing it is! utterly different to anything else I ever read... 'The Skylark' makes one feel happy only; I suppose because it is nearly all music..." A fine set in limp vellum without ties, as issued; the books in this set were the only vellum books from the Press issued as such.
