"William Morris engraved on wood at least 35, and possibly 40, of the 'Cupid and Psyche' scenes. A number of his helpers engraved the remainder, fewer than ten. Both May Morris and S. C. Cockerell recorded the attributions, which will be found on pages 19-20 and in note 67 on page 34 in Volume One: they differ slightly, but Morris's major contribution is not in doubt." Laid-in: Publisher Prosectus, a 4-page, folded sheet of hand-made paper, loosely enclosed specimen page and order form included.
