Each volume is covered in pure linen specially printed for this edition by Liberty of London in William Morris's Larkspur. This pattern designed in 1874, has not been reprinted on fabric during the past hundred years. The original colourway of deep red-brown madder on a sand ground has been used for the bold floral design in this new, full-size printing. Hand stitched and bound by A. W. Lumsden, Bookbinders Ltd, Edinbourgh. The Kelmscott Chaucer printed by The John Roberts Press Ltd, London in letterpress black and red. The companion volume printed by W. S.
