Lemire (emer., Flinders Univ. of South Australia) draws on his expertise as a published scholar on and editor of William Morris's writings to compile the most thorough and accurate descriptive bibliography on the subject. Lemire aims to update and correct two previously published Morris bibliographies, both of which are over 100 years old. The scope of Lemire's bibliography is to capture Morris's writings that were intended for publication. Thus, Morris's published private letters, translations of his works into other languages, and secondary scholarship are excluded; variant editions of Morris's works, submissions to periodicals, and lectures written and delivered are included. Five sections comprise the bibliography: "Original Editions with Posthumous Editions to 1915 and First Editions to the Present," "Morris's Contributions to Books," "Morris Collections and Selections," "Morris in Periodical Publications," and "Forgeries, Piracies and Sophistications." Two appendixes capture Morris's interviews and ephemera. Each bibliographic entry captures the following elements: quasi-facsimile transcription of the title page, editions, publisher, place of publication, collation, contents, and more. The book incorporates 100 illustrations. Book collectors and textual critics will find Lemire's descriptive entries of each Morris work valuable. Summing Up: Recommended. Institutions and individuals with a strong research interest in the Victorian period; upper-level undergraduates through faculty/researchers. J. Novak University of California, Irvine
