Linton- Life in the Collections

Susan Otis Thompson:

42) American Book Design and William Morris,

New York / London 1977

Although the author has to admit that Linton's Appledore Press "was he most noteworthy private press in America prior to the nineties", she comes to the conclusion that "Linton´s delicate books do not foreshadow those of Morris." In her adjudgement she only refers to Linton's collection of poems, like The Golden Apples of Hesperus, not to his illustrated pamphlets.
