The Stained Glass of William Morris and his Circle two volumes.
Yale University Press 1974
Volume 1: 119pp + 665 colour and black and white plates. Volume 2; Catalogue of window and glass designs. Large 4to. Good set with slightly worn and darkened dust wrappers. Internally very good. Previous owners name on front end papers. A. Charles Sewter thoroughly describes the firm's work from its founding in 1861 to its closing in 1940. Drawing on his first-hand knowledge of almost every Morris window in the United Kingdom and throughout the world, and on account-books and other unpublished sources, he treats in detail the firm's major commissions. He describes the preparation of cartoons and windows and comes to new conclusions about the creative role of Morris and the other artists. Hard to find.
