The Library of William Morris

January 6, 2015

A project is under way, led by Sylvia Holton and William S. Peterson to reconstruct the personal library of William Morris.  The books that once belonged to Morris were largely dispersed through various sales after Morris’ death, including some acquired by what are today still the two largest holdings at the Wellcome Library in London and the Morgan Library in New York. The catalogue — a work in progress – and further details about the project can be consulted online at this location.
