Scope and Contents: The Triple Crown Collection consists of over 1,000 items from three of the late nineteenth to early twentieth century fine book presses of the English Arts and Crafts movement: the Kelmscott Press, the Doves Press, and the Ashendene Press. The English Arts and Crafts movement inspired by the medieval period, sought to emulate the beauty of the medieval book through intricate and elegant engraved illustrations and typefaces. This collection includes a substantial number of these three legendary private presses’ completed works, along with many items relating to the history and production of the presses, such as prospectuses, correspondence, and proof pages. This collections strengths lays in its comprehensiveness, including nearly every book and ephemeral item, recorded and unrecorded, that these three presses produced. The collection includes what is considered the Triple Crown of fine press publications: the Kelmscott Press’s stunning The Works of Geoffrey Chaucer (1896), the Doves Press The English Bible (1903-05), and the Ashendene Press’s folio edition of Dante’s Divine Comedy, Tutte le opere di Dante Alighieri fiorentino (1909). This collection provides both a visual and textual history of the English Arts and Crafts movement. The items are divided into four series: Series 01: Kelmscott Press, Series 02: Doves Press, Series 03: Ashendene Press, and Series 04: Reference Materials.
