Preface by Joseph Riggs Dunlap. The introductions written by William Morris's daughter May Morris for inclusion in the twenty-four volume set of his collected works, which was published between 1910 and 1915. May, in addition to having been her father's helper and companion, had participated in the Arts and Crafts movement, and was thus "in a unique position to observe, record and discuss the events of her father's life, his many works, his friends and associates, his tastes, his hopes and his forceful personality." These introductions connect the life and conditions of William Morris, the man and the artist, to each of his writings within the context of the time of their being written.
