Kelmscott Press pageEdit

Hi, I'm going to be working on a new page for the Kelmscott Press. Let me know if you have suggestions for sources. I have the Peterson history of the press, which looks exhaustive, and six other books of varying relevance, but I haven't yet looked for any modern analysis in journal articles.

Kelmscott Chaucer
Here's a photo I took of the Kelmscott Chaucer, Rachel Helps (BYU). I own copies of the Morris biographies by E.P. Thompson and Fiona McCarthy. I am happy to help. Cullen328 Let's discuss it 02:27, 14 July 2021 (UTC)
Cullen328 This is what I have so far. I mostly summarize the Peterson book The Kelmscott Press: A History of William Morris's Typographical Adventure. I have a tendency to include too much detail when I draw from mostly one source like this. Feel free to edit my sandbox page. I have some other projects I'm working on and I might not finish it until the end of August or so. Rachel Helps (BYU) (talk) 15:55, 14 July 2021 (UTC)
Press now has its own page under development at Kelmscott Press. Thanks all concerned.--Mervyn (talk) 14:53, 1 October 2021 (UTC)

Fascist Quarterly essayEdit

William Morris is the subject of an essay "William Morris: National Socialist" by Arthur Reade (Arthur Reade?), which appeared in the Fascist Quarterly, a journal associated with the British Union of Fascists, and is reprinted in the book Fascist Voices: Essays from the 'Fascist Quarterly' 1936-1940, which is [currently in print and sold on Amazon]. Though obscure (this is the only place that I have seen Morris associated with fascism), it seems notable, at least, and probably indicative that Morris was associated with fascism elsewhere. I cannot see where it would fit in the article, so I am posting it here, in case anyone else think it's worthy of inclusion. Sinopecynic (talk) 01:24, 19 August 2022 (UTC)

If it's an obscure article and the the only occasion you've seen Morris associated with fascism, I don't think it's worth including. Evidently the author's attempt to appropriate Morris didn't gain traction even within fascist circles. --Ismail (talk) 10:34, 18 October 2022 (UTC)
