Bloomsbury Auctions recently (17 March 2016, lot 1010) sold an ex-library copy from the Norfolk County Library for £24,000. It was a quarter-linen showing some signs of wear.
¶ "I began printing books with the hope of producing some which would have a definite claim to beauty, while at the same time they should be easy to read and should not dazzle the eye, or trouble the intellect of the reader by eccentricity of form in the letters. I have always been a great admirer of the calligraphy of the Middle Ages, and of the earlier printing which took its place." — William Morris
