The Life of William Morris in Two Volumes

£39.99

Product description

Published in 1970 by Haskell House Publishers Ltd, a facsimile of original 1899 copy.

The author, John William Mackail (1859 – 1945) was a Scottish man of letters and socialist, now best remembered as a Virgil scholar. He was also a poet, literary historian and biographer. A friend of William Morris, he wrote this 1899 official biography.

William Morris (1834 – 1896) was an English textile designer, poet, novelist, translator, and socialist activist. Associated with the British Arts and Crafts Movement, he was a major contributor to the revival of traditional British textile arts and methods of production. His literary contributions helped to establish the modern fantasy genre, while he played a significant role in propagating the early socialist movement in Britain.

Both books are in very good condition throughout.
