8vo. London: Faber and Gwyer, 1928. 8vo, 340 pp, with a frontispiece and 8 monochrome plates. 1st Edition. Internally very good, but in a blue cloth library binding, with white dampstain along top 0.5 cm of cloth on front and back covers, and slight traces of the damp on endpapers and last 2 pp of the index. No library stamps, and just signs that library loan details were once tipped to inside of rear cover, with a small remnant visible. Bentley, BB, 2205 (p 866). Basically a very thorough biography of Rossetti and overview of his work: a late chapter "Dreamworld" starts by analysing Blake's influence on Rossetti. (Inventory #: 109135)
