ROSSETTI, Dante Gabriel. Poems. London: F.S. Ellis, 1870. First edition, 8vo (192 x 125mm.) 4pp. advertisements at rear. (Light browning, occasional minor spotting and soiling.) Original green cloth blocked in gilt with repeating scroll and flower decoration (extremities bumped and scuffed, lower-cover slightly affected by damp, lower joint split, hinges split). Provenance: George Frederic Watts (presentation inscription from the author 'To George F Watts from his friend D G Rossetti April 1870' to half-title); Ronald Chapman (signature to front pastedown); thence by descent.
