---. William Morris, His Art, His Writings, and His Public Life: A Record. London: Bell, 1909. Appendix I: Chronological list of the printed works of William Morris; Appendix II: Publications of the Kelmscott P. Title in red and black. Printed at the Chiswick P. First ed. published in 1897. Cheaper reprint in 1909. As the title of this work indicates, Vallance intended to write only about Morris's public life, even though he knew Morris personally. He details the circumstances surrounding the publishing of this work in his preface, letting his readers know that he had Morris's permission to write this work and is indebted to Morris for permission to reproduce drawings, illustrations, etc. Morris's only request was that the work could not be published until after his death. The author has included a number of full page lates, including many examples of Morris's wallpaper and tapestries. There are also several drawings of the Red House, Kelmscott Manor and the house occupied by the Kelmscott Press. In addition, several title pages are reproduced. PRB-108

---. The Poems of Master Francois Villon of Paris. London: Printed for the Villon society for private circulation, 1892. Now first done into English verse, in the original forms, with a biographical and critical introduction by John Payne. No. 169. Definitive edition. Payne's translation was first issued 1878. At the time at which Payne translated the poems of Villon there were already four modern editions, but each of these, according to Payne, is "very incomplete and radically faulty in being founded mainly upon the printed texts, which are known to be terribly garbled and corrupt, and not upon the only sound basis, namely, a minute and critical collation of the various manuscript texts in existence" (Prefatory Note). Payne notes that he has made use of the most current scholarship available for Villon, who has been called the father of French poetry, noting that little was known about him, even less than the information on Shakespeare or Dante. "Up to no more distant period than the early part of the year 1877, it was not even known what was his real name, nor were the admirers of his genius in possession of any other facts relative to his personal history than could be gleaned, by a laborious process of inference and deduction, from such works of his as have been handed down to posterity."
