About this Item

"No-one else was writing about the Pre-Raphaelites in the 1920's, and it is therefore interesting to know what an intelligent and independent-minded author thought about them, especially during their most unfashionable phase. We must, of course, be thankful that Waugh became a novelist and not an art-historian, but he does deserve to be remembered as one of the most distinguished pioneers of the Victorian revival" (44). This is the first published edition of Waugh's essay, which was first printed privately by Alastair Graham in 1926. As Christopher Sykes and Christopher Wood describe it in the preface and postscript, respectively, Waugh's account of the Pre-Raphaelite Brotherhood is not very scholarly (for one, Waugh makes biased remarks about William Holman Hunt, who married not one but two of his relatives, the sisters Fanny and Edith Waugh); however it is regarded as the first serious bit of writing by one of the greatest novelists of the 20th century. A commission followed to write the biography of Dante Gabriel Rossetti, Waugh's first full-length book. The text was designed by Robert Hamilton Dalrymple using Monophoto Modern Extended 7 and printed on Zerkall mould-made paper at the Westerham Press, illustrated with => six plates reproducing portraits drawn by Dante Gabriel Rossetti, William Holman Hunt, and John Everett Millais, of each other. The binding, in navy blue cloth with the title stamped in red on the front cover and spine, and matching red endpapers, was designed by Hunter & Foulis of Edinburgh. Of an edition limited to 475 copies, this is number 118, written in manuscript below the colophon. 4to (25.2 cm, 9.9"). 44, [3] pp. Binding as above, in protective mylar wrappers. Short marginal tear to bottom of one leaf, else => like new. Bookseller Inventory # 30683
