within reach of all classes of readers poems that cannot be
too widely known for the honour of English literature."
Scotsman, Jan. igth, 1891.

"... Hitherto these poems have been obtainable only
in an expensive form ; now they appear in a shape not only
handy, but comparatively cheap. Let us hope that the result
will be a large circulation for the volume, and a great increase
of popularity for the poet. . . . The interest of the book,
otherwise very great, is heightened by the excellent portrait
of Rossetti, which appears as frontispiece, and by the bio-
graphical and expository preface furnished by the editor."
Globe, Jan i2th, 1891.

11 This is a volume to be grateful for. ... In binding, type,
paper, it may well shame certain publishers now engaged in
putting forth cheap and nasty double-columned reprints of our
nineteenth-century poets. The etching, which faces the title-
page, and is taken from a photograph dated 1864, usefully
qualifies the impression given by Mr. Watts's well-known
portrait. . . . We repeat our thanks for this volume ; and in
turning its pages our sense revives of the loss that literature
came near to suffer when Rossetti, overwhelmed with grief
at his wife's death, buried in her coffin the manuscripts of
these poems." Daily Chronicle, Jan. I4th, 1891.

" All lovers of poetry will rejoice at the publication in
one volume, and at a moderate price, of the poetical works
of Dante Gabriel Rossetti. Ever since the death of this
exquisite and greatly gifted poet, in the spring of 1882, the
number of his admirers has been steadily increasing, and
it is, perhaps, not too much to say that before long Rossetti
will take his place among the most popular and widely read
of English singers. The present edition of his collected
poems is well printed on good paper, and makes a con-
venient, attractive, and companionable volume in short, just
such a volume as would be likely to commend itself to every
lover of the poet. Moreover, it contains a portrait of the
author, executed from a photograph taken in 1864." Echo,
Jan. 23rd, 1891.

"... Does great credit to its publishers. Mr. W. M.
Rossetti's preface is a condensation of that which appeared
in the "Collected Works" (two vols.), published at the
close of 1886; and calls for nothing but praise." Speaker,
Jan. 24th, 1891.

"... Here, then, in a single volume, and at a ' popular
price,' are the poems of another of our great Victorian poets.
. . . The Rossetti volume is published, I should add, by
Messrs. Ellis & Elvey, and is presented in a very pleasant
form." Pall Mall Gazette, Jan. loth, 1891.

"All admirers of the exquisite grace, the strength, and the
philosophy of Dante Gabriel Rossetti's poems will give a
cordial welcome to the new, cheap, and well-got-up edition of
the work just published by Messrs. Ellis & Elvey. In this
excellent edition of The Poetical Works of Dante Gabriel
Rossetti, the preface, rich in personal and literary detail, by
the poet's brother, William M. Rossetti, is reproduced, and
the volume is also made the more interesting and complete
by an excellent etched portrait of the author, by C. W.
Sherborn. The new edition is in a most convenient and
agreeable form, to enable the lovers of the author of The
Blessed Damozel, The House of Life, etc., to always have the
works of their favourite poet at hand, and the tasteful
volume is sure to find a wide and ready sale." Court Journal,
Feb. 7th, 1891.

" Messrs. Ellis & Elvey have published in one comely
volume The Poetical Works of Dante Gabriel Rossetti. The
edition includes all the poems (and no others) found in the
larger edition of 1886, but Mr. W. M. Rossetti has abridged
his preface. For popular use nothing could be better than
this volume." Yorkshire Post, Feb. nth, 1891.

" All Rossetti's poems are included in the present edition,
which, being in one volume, and comparatively cheap, will
carry them into wider circles of readers, who will receive
from them much of the delight which can only be expected
from the entry into a new poetic world." Glasgow Herald,
Feb. 3rd, 1891.

"... We may, therefore, well be grateful to Mr. W. M.
Rossetti for giving us in this single volume a complete collec-
tion of his brother's poems." Yorkshire Herald, Feb. 2nd, 1891.

"... The edition is satisfactory ; it includes nothing
that is not entirely Rossetti's, it is fairly well turned out by
the publishers, and it is introduced with an abridgement
of the somewhat too coldly judicial preface to the earlier
edition." Manchester Guardian, Jan. 27th, 1891.
