The 1893 edition of Utopia was a reprint of the second English edition of 1556. The book was printed at the Kelmscott Press and then bound in white pig's skin with metal clasps. This style is mirrored in the incunabulum Processus Judiciarius (c. 1485), formerly in Morris’s collection.
Ivo’s Liber Decretorum Siue Panormia (1499), the second of Morris’s former volumes, was rebound in nineteenth century. A note in the volume suggests that it was Morris’s friend T.J. Cobden-Sanderson who undertook the rebinding. In 1893 Cobden-Sanderson set up the Doves Bindery in London.
