About this Item: Blackie & Son, 1910. Hardcover. Condition: Good. No Jacket. 1st Edition. This is a presumed 1st H/Bk edition of “Poems by Christina Rossetti” with illustrations by Florence Harrison and an introduction by Alice Meynell and published by Blackie in 1910. The book is in full white buckram with gilt titles and Art Nouveau design in gilt to spine and the front cover. The top edge is gilt and the others are untrimmed. There are 371 pages with 36 tipped-in colour plates on grey card and a further 34 black and white full page illustrations and there are numerous small illustrations at the head and tail of most of the poems. There is a prize label in the inside of the front board from Craigmount, Edinburgh dated July 1916. There are no other inscriptions, marks or foxing in the book. The cover is grubby and the corners and edges are bumped. The binding is tight and a couple of pages are loose but not detached. It is, however, a nice clean copy. This is a heavy book and overseas purchasers will incur extra postage charges. Seller Inventory # ABE-1520005944870

About this Item: Blackie and Son Limited, London, 1910. FIRST TRADE EDITION, 4to, pp. xxiv, 369, [3] + 36 tipped-in colour plates. 34 black and white full-page illustrations within the pagination, numerous head- and tail-pieces as well, all by Florence Harrison. Original white cloth, front board and spine blocked elaborately in gilt, decorative endpapers, top edge gilt, others untrimmed. Front hinge strained before half-title, cloth very lightly soiled and gently bumped at extremities. Gift inscription to verso of flyleaf: 'Miss Moinet, with love from Gracie, 25th July 1918' A very nice copy of what is evidently a variant issue - the title-page is printed in black only and has the date of publication at the foot, while most copies have a title-page of a different design printed in rust-red and black, without a date; another variation is the presence of a vignette on the verso of the title-page here which is not found anywhere in the other issue. Apart from the title-page and its verso, the two issues appear identical, and no variants are noted by Jacobs. A sumptuous production, with Harrison's illustrations exemplifying pre-Raphaelite style. Jacobs, 'Florence Susan Harrison', IBIS 46, no. 13. Seller Inventory # 2632

ROBERT BROWNING'S SIGNATURE tipped-in Vol. I opposite title-page. Ownership signatures of W. J. [--- Ruex?] Settle (Sherborne, Dorset , Feb. 21, 1869) and F. Rowlandson. OWNERSHIP SIGNATURES OF E. M. FORSTER Vol. 2 to free front end-leaf and title-page. Attractive copy. Very good. FIRST EDITION of Browning's famous work, with Roman numerals on volumes I & III spines and Arabic on the remaining vols. 2 & 4. WITH A CUT-SIGNATURE TIPPED-IN OF ROBERT BROWNING. The "ring" from this work's title is the wedding band Browning gave to his wifeâ€"after her death, he wore it on a chain around his neck. The book referenced by the title is, according critic Charles Wesley Hodell, a soiled collection of documents relating to a Franceschini murder trial that occurred in Florence in 1698, likely assembled by a lawyer at the time, that Browning purchased in the marketplace of San Lorenzo for 1 lira. PROVENANCE: W. J. [--- Ruex?] Settle (Sherborne, Dorset â€" F. Rowlandson â€" "E. M. FORSTER": possibly Edward M. Forster (1879-1970) "was an English novelist, short story writer, essayist and librettist. He is known best for his ironic and well-plotted novels examining class difference and hypocrisy in early 20th-century British society. Forster's humanistic impulse toward understanding and sympathy may be aptly summed up in the epigraph to his 1910 novel Howards End: 'Only connect. . .'. His 1908 novel, A Room with a View, is his most optimistic work, while A Passage to India (1924) brought him his greatest success" (Wikipedia). While Forster did not personally know Browning, as he was still a child at the time of Browning's death, he held him in high regard. His reading list at King's College included "Paradise Lost. . .some Kipling, and a good deal of Robert Browning and Christina Rossetti" (Sarker, p. 22). Note: Sherborne School, Dorset, is the same school attended by Alfred North Whitehead, Alan Turing, Lord Swynnerton, John Cowper Powys, Jeremy Irons, Cecil Day-Lewis, etc. Note: Count Guido Franceschini was found guilty of the murders of his young wife Pompilia Comparini and her parents, having suspected his wife of having an affair with a young cleric, Giuseppe Caponsacchi. "The poem is based on a real-life case. Under Roman law at the time, trials were not held in open court but rather by correspondence, whereupon each witness was required to submit a written statement for future adjudication. Browsing in a flea market in Florence in 1860, Browning came across a large volume of these written statements relating to the 1698 Franceschini case, and bought it on the spot. This volume - later known as the Yellow Book, after the colour of its aged covers - struck Browning as an excellent basis for a poem, but he was unable to get any further than the basic idea and often offered it as a subject to other writers, notably Alfred Tennyson, upon which to base a poem or novel. Luckily for posterity, there were no takers, and following his wife's death and his return to England, Browning revived his old plan for a long poem based on the Roman murder case almost eight years after the idea had first struck him." Hodell, Charles Wesley. An Essay On Robert Browning's The Ring And The Book. Whitefish, MT: Kessinger, 2006; Sarker, Sunil Kumar. E. M. Forster's A Passage to India. New Delhi: Atlantic, 2007.
