Burne-Jones Books



For anyone passing through New York City, there is an interesting show of
late nineteenth century art books inserted at the tail-end of the
Burne-Jones exhibition at the Metropolitan Museum of Art (running through
September 6): 3 works from the Kelmscott Press, two hand-decorated vellum
bindings by Burne-Jones, a copy of the Rubayat hand-written and decorated
by William Morris, and an Aeneid begun by Morris, Burne-Jones and Charles
Fairfax Murray, with gilding completed by Louise Powell and credit for the
gilding taken by Graily Hewitt.
