Description: Froissart (Jehan) Chronicles, two trial pages, limited to 160 copies, all printed on vellum, the first page with colophon, the double-page opening in red and black Chaucer type with title in Troy type, the left page with large wood-engraved decoration at foot, one large initial and three smaller ones, the second page with wood-engraved border incorporating a large letter T, one large initial and three smaller ones, all designed by William Morris, morocco-backed vellum by Douglas Cockerell, [Peterson A46], folio, 1897. ***The two volume project was first delayed because of shortage of type caused by the printing of the Kelmscott Chaucer, and then abandoned following the death of William Morris. The two sheets have been bound so that here the second page of text precedes the first. The colophon identifies the coats of arms in the border and decoration as those of France, the Empire, England, Reginald Lord Cobham, Sir Walter Manny, and Sir John Chandos..
