A Dream of John Ball

 by William Morris, 1898

#130 of 650

The book measures 8 3/4" x 5 3/8" and has 147 pages.  The body of text is Antiqua Old Style and 650 copies were printed on Boxmoor  paper. McKenna states that the edition of 650 was bound in paper over boards with a cloth spine, but I think the regular edition had a suede spine. The edition of 100 that was printed on Whatman paper was bound in paper over boards with a cloth spine. This book is listed in the 1899 catalog and sold for $2.00
