ID: RB/002

Primary Creator: Gould, Charles P.

Extent: 1060.0 Items

Arrangement: The Triple Crown Collection has been arranged into four series: Kelmscott Press, Doves Press, Ashendene Press, and Reference Materials.

Languages: English, Italian, Latin

Scope and Contents of the Materials

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.

Collection Historical Note

The Washington University Library purchased the Triple Crown Collection in 2000 from Charles P. Gould through Bromer Booksellers. The Triple Crown Collection was built over nearly 70 years since the 1930s by Charles P. Gould, a book collector from Pasadena, California, and includes a substantial number of original private press books, materials used towards the creations of the books, such as prospectuses, sketches, and proofs, correspondence, and catalogues. Gould normally acquired his books as single items, and completed his collection a year before its purchase by Washington University. In 2005 the Library purchased the Eric Gill Collection, which was also collected by Charles P. Gould, and includes over 400 items of another member of the Arts and Craft’s movement’s work, Eric Gill’s books, printings, drawings, correspondence, and engraved woodblocks for printing.

This collection of illustrative materials relates to the Frankeleyns tale in the Kelmscott Press 1896 edition of the works of Geoffrey Chaucer. It displays various steps in the collaborative process of translating Edward Burne-Jones's drawings into printed illustrations: First, Burne-Jones created the original pencil drawing, which was then photographed by Emery Walker. Robert Catterson-Smith would finalize the drawing by going over the platinum print first with dark pencil and then ink. This final inked version would then be transferred to a woodblock, to be cut by W.H. Hooper. These materials provide additional insight into the revision process, as figures were enlarged and perfected before the final inking.

Item 6: Letter from William Morris regarding Kelmscott book, 1891Add to your cart.

William Morris to an unknown recipient in response to a request for a Kelmscott Press book. Morris agrees to sell one of his own copies, "although the proceeding is irregular," and directs his correspondent to send the money to his agrents at Reeves or Quaritch. Based on the date and price, the book was likely 'Poems by the way.' Morris ends on a rather cantankerous note, remarking that his publishers ought to be handling the business end of things. Autograph letter, signed, on Kelmscott House stationery.
