Completed in October of 1927, it was "a massive accomplishment in design and production, of first importance in the literature of the printed book. It is one of Rogers' most impressive volumes; its inclusion as one of the honored 'thirty' can not be questioned." (Bluemnthal, Bruce Rogers, pp. 97-98).

The Poems of John Keats

By Keats, John

Hammersmith: Kelmscott Press, 1894. One of 300 copies on paper. Engraved title-page, borders and initial capitals. 1 vols. 8vo. Original vellum, with ties. Fine. One of 300 copies on paper. Engraved title-page, borders and initial capitals. 1 vols. 8vo. The Kelmscott Keats. Keats - especially his "La Belle Dame sans Merci" - was an icon of the Pre-Raphaelites, and how deeply Morris felt about the publication of this book is illustrated by his discovery of some initial mistakes in the text of "La Belle Dame sans Merci." According to Sidney Colvin in his John Keats [1918], p. 470: "I was with him when he happened to open the sheet on which La Belle Dame sans Merci was printed. He began to read it and was suddenly aware of unfamiliar words ... Great was his indignation. He swiftly altered the words and then read the poem to me, remarking that it was the germ from which all the poetry of his group had sprung - The sheet was reprinted and the earlier and better version restored ...". Peterson A24
