"Specimen pamphlet of handmade paper printed on the original Kelmscott Press. Watermarked with the three leaves and flowers between W and M. of William Morris, dated approximately 1890–91." — Wayside Mews Collectables

From the specimen:

This paper … is probably some of the last made for the Kelmscott Press, founded by William Morris and hand made paper of Joseph Batchelor and Sons, at Little Chart in Kent. … The type used is Kelmscott Troy, cast from the original matrices, and this specimen has been printed on a Victoria platen press at the Rampant Lions Press, Cambridge, 1974.

In 2001, Richard Kegler of P22 has created a set of digital typefaces based on Morris' work, including Morris Troy.
