Brief Notes on Book

Hand-illuminated printing of “Syr Perecyvelle of Gales,” later rebound by the French Binders of Garden City, New York.

Essay

This unique book has been a personal favorite of mine for many years. It was discovered in a discard bin in 2016, and as I had studied William Morris and the Kelmscott Press extensively in college I snatched it up immediately. The process of researching and learning more about the book was a long and arduous one, but the sheer joy that came from doing so and from sharing it with others was very much worth it. The hand-illumination work done by the French Binders is breathtaking, and it remains a great favorite of my collection.
