[2] adverts xii, pp 284, [4] adverts. Fine example of Victorian binding on this 'Third Edition' published in 1870, the same year as the first. Bound in dark green linen with a trellis covered in flowers gilt design by Rossetti himself to the boards and spine, a couple of light marks but much better than usual. Blue flowered endpapers with ownership inscription of 'Stephen Marshall 25th July 1870' on the half title and his neat name stamp at the head of the title page, a neatly repaired closed tear coming in 4cm from the foreedge of the dedication leaf - almost invisible to recto. Otherwise a very clean fresh copy internally. Famously this work contains the poems that Rossetti stowed in his wife's coffin in 1862 only to disinter and publish them at the end of the decade - they made his reputation.
