Summary :

From a foreword by David Langford
In The Wood Beyond the World, a sea voyage separates the more fantastic realms from the hero Walter's mundane home town, though the land of the Wood sends visions even there -- of the land's witchy Mistress, her enslaved Maid, and a hideous, savagely energetic dwarf servitor. Walter defies all advice and reason, abandons his fellows, and sets off through mountains and wastes to the Wood where he can meet the mysterious three the stage is set for triangular games of love and power.

The Wood Beyond the World (1894)
Edition Details (From the publisher):

When William Morris founded the Kelmscott Press in 1890, he brought to it a concatenation of medieval craft ideals, plus the abilities of one of the most sophisticated, progressive designers in Britain. He set out to create books as routinely beautiful as the products of the Middle Ages, and he did this by throwing out many of the commercial practices of his day. He designed types of great beauty, fitted to the subject matter of the book; reintroduced color into the body of the page; and in general recreated the printed page as a living entity. As a result his books are works of beauty.
