ROSSETTI, Christina. Poems of Christina Rossetti. London: Macmillan & Co., 1904.

Finely bound in contemporary red morocco with highly detailed ornamental gilt bordering and banding to the spine, marbled endpapers, all edges gilt, with the bookplate of Margaret Griselda Wedderburn to front free endpaper depicting a naked woman holding a book against the backdrop of a scenic valley despite the risk of catching cold and the inadequacy of books as hunting tools or weapons with which to fend off predators; pp. 332; spine beginning to fade a little, with a small, apparently ink, blemish to second panel down and 2 gilt rules now black; nonetheless a very attractive book.
A 1904 printing of Rossetti's poetical works in a charming binding.
