Kelmscott Edition of Morris’ Own The Wood Beyond the World

 

Yes, ’tis true–The Rare Book Room has secured yet another title by the Kelmscott Press. This time ’tis William Morris’ own The Wood Beyond the World.

Call it fantasy fiction or romance, Morris, under the influence of C.S. Lewis perhaps, wrote The Wood Beyond the World in his later years. Lin Carter dubbed it “the first great fantasy novel ever written”… “in the Medieval sense” one might add.

Only five more to go until we complete the Kelmscott Press Collection. When the Library does complete this collection, it will have achieved a goal of its librarians past and present!
