William Morris. Earthly Paradise. Boston: Reeves and Turner, 1890

The gold design that appears on this green binding of the Earthly Paradisewas designed by William Morris in 1890. This copy was inscribed by Morris to his wife's sister, Elizabeth Burden. The intricate flower and leaf design was later reproduced with a red background for the 1900 edition by Longmans.
