            MAY MORRIS (1862-1938) AND WILLIAM MORRIS (1834-1896) COLLECTION OF LETTERS comprising a letter to Katie dated 25th August 1928 from Haltwhistle whilst on holiday with 'MF' (her companion Mary Lobb), asking for a receipt book from W.H. Smith, descriptions of the countryside around Hadrian's Wall, a visit with Celia Roberts etc; A letter to Mary Sloane (member and Honorary Secretary of the Women's Guild of Arts) dated 22nd February 1937 apologising for her inability to attend a committee meeting due to illness, the death of Edward Garnet etc.; and an undated postcard from Kelmscott Manor with travel plans; also a copy of NEWS FROM NOWHERE, by William Morris, published by Reeves & Turner, London, 1891 in an edition of 250 copies, paper covered hardback binding, later covered in Morris & Co fabric, uncut pages, pasted to the inside from cover with the bookplate of William Robinson (1838-1935) and bearing an inscription in ink by May Morris 'In memory of pleasant days at Kelmscott/ May Morris June 4th 1927' Provenance: From the collection of Arthur Halcrow Verstage Note: Arthur Halcrow Verstage (1875-1969) was an architect who spent much of his career in the public sector. He was a student at the Royal Academy School of Architecture in the 1900s and was elected an Associate of the Royal Institute of British Architects in 1902. By 1903 he was a student and assistant at the Central School of Arts and Crafts (later known as the Central School of Art and Design) in London, where William Lethaby was principal and a great influence on him. He then oversaw the design of the new school in Southampton Row from 1905-8. From here, he became an architect for London County Council, was involved with many London societies and was a founding member of the Kelmscott Fellowship, a forerunner to The William Morris Society. His large and varied collection was a reflection of his wide interest in the arts. His archive was purchased by The William Morris Society in 2005. The Irish horticulturist and journalist William Robinson (1838-1935) had a marked effect on the textile arts during the final decades of the nineteenth century. Author of The Wild Garden (1870) and The English Flowered Garden (1883), Robinson rejected the artificiality and formality of High Victorian pattern gardening in favour of naturalised plantings of perennial shrubs and climbers. This approach found favour with Arts & Crafts textiles designers at the time including May Morris.

Provenance The property of John Kenworthy-Browne FSA John Kenworthy-Browne is an art historian specialising in architecture and sculpture, principally from the neoclassical period.  He was educated at Ampleforth College and Wadham College, Oxford, followed by the Courtauld Institute in London.  John was the first National Trust curator at Dyrham Park, Gloucestershire, which he opened to the public in 1961.  The Queen Mother visited Dyrham on 16th March 1962, and she was pictured with him outside the Assembly Rooms during the visit.  After his time at Dyrham, John joined Christie’s where he catalogued furniture, and it was at Christie’s that he first became fascinated with sculpture.   John has published numerous articles in Apollo, Burlington Magazine, The British Art Journal, Sculpture Journal and Country Life. He wrote the sculpture entries for The Age of Neo-Classicism Exhibition in 1972.  He also published Chippendale and his Contemporaries (1975), and he was the co-author of Three Centuries of Furniture (1972) and The Country House Guide (1979). His work on a publication on the British sculptor Joseph Nollekens was cut short by an accident, and it is for John’s care that the present lot is being sold.    Literature Linda Parry, William Morris Textiles, 1983, page 148 catalogue number 12 for an example in a different colour scheme.
