About this Item

Brother of famed Pre-Raphaelite painter and poet Dante Gabriel and of poet Christina, this noted English art critic is considered another of the founders of the Pre-Raphaelite Brotherhood; he edited its publication, "The Germ," and also served as art critic for "The Spectator"; as an editor, who collected the writings of his famous brother and sister, and he also edited and wrote biographies of such literary figures as Keats and Shelley. ALS, 2pp (recto and verso), 4½" X 7", 56 Easton Square N.W. [London?], n.y. November 17. Addressed to Frederick Follett (possibly the American newspaper publisher, 1841-1912). Very good. Faint inoffensive paper clip stain mark at top of verso. Cordial response to an enquiry, reading in part: "To the best of my Knowledge & belief, there never was an Index printed to Weldon's Register. If there was, I regret to say that it wd. not be in my power to put you in the way of procuring a copy, as I have lost sight of the Editor & c of that periodical." Bold, attractive signature. Walter Weldon (1832-85) founded "Weldon's Register of Facts and Occurrences relating to Literature, the Sciences and the Arts" in 1860, and it appeared monthly until 1863 only. Rossetti apparently appeared in its pages -- hence this exchange. Rather uncommon. Bookseller Inventory # 21964
