I want to announce the newly launched MOSHER PRESS website to The Oscholars. The URL is I think some members of Oscholars might benefit by knowing of its existence. Perhaps in some way you might post this information for your members. As you may know, Mosher was an advocate for Oscar Wilde here in America, publishing his poetry at a time other publishers were shying away from publishing Wilde.

Most sincerely,

Phil Bishop

From: William S. Peterson <>

We’re happy to report that our digital catalogue of William Morris’s personal library now has now more than 1,600 entries, some of which contain multiple titles. We are indicating the present locations of books whenever possible, and we are also making a conscientious effort to record any provenance information that may be available. We’re still not sure how many titles we will eventually be able to identify, but our rough guess is that the figure will be something like 2,300. So far we have posted entries for about 373 fifteenth-century titles and 215 sixteenth-century titles, but we have also been surprised by how many nineteenth-century books Morris owned.

We welcome suggestions, corrections, and new information.

Bill and Sylvia Peterson
