[These original designs of Sir E. Burne-Jones for the Kelmscott Chaucer were nearly all drawn by him in pencil, and re-drawn in ink chiefly by R. Catterson-Smith, under the continual personal supervision of the artist. They were then transferred to the wood by means of photography. These are the developments of Mr. Catterson-Smith from the original pencil drawings. Mr. Catterson-Smith, in a communication to a daily newspaper in November, 1896, declares that "these drawings are more absolutely BurneJones's, than if he had done them with his own hand.”— Catalogue.]
