From a bound volume containing 86 studies for illustrations to 'The Story of Cupid and Psyche' made to accompany the poem in William Morris' 'The Earthly Paradise'. This is presumably an earlier design than 1927P648.34, as it is rougher and exhibits greater differences from the final wood engraving.

Bequeathed by James Richardson Holliday, 1927.
