Notes
  • Date from the colophon.
  • 15 woodcuts, including 2 repeats, mostly signed IK with a dagger.
  • Printer's mark on t.-p. and on last page.
  • The 15 woodcut illustrations are mostly signed I.K., accompanied by a short dagger in a sheath, some have the initials only, and some are unsigned. They are by an unknown German artist, thought erroneously attributed by many authorities to Jakob Kerver or Jakob Koebel. cf. Nagler, Monogrammisten, v.3, p.1021, no.2682.
Provenance
Presentation copy from Edward Burne-Jones to William Morris, whose bookplate is inside front cover.
