Icelandic Journals

Images, Morris' handwritten diaries (British Library Manuscripts)

1871 Journey to Iceland

These two manuscripts, Add. MSS. 45,319A and B, contain Morris's journal entries for 1871. They were later fair copied for Georgiana Burne-Jones and this copy was used for the Collected Works edition.

The manuscript of these copies is in the Fitzwilliam Museum Library, signed "fair copy . . . made by him for my Mother Georgiana Burne-Jones, and now given by her son and daughter to the Fitzwilliam Museum. / Philip Burne-Jones, July 1922." There are a few differences between Morris's version, available here, and the one which was eventually published.
