Days With the Victorian Poets


Pictures from Days with the Victorian Poets [Rossetti, Morris, Browning], published anonymously in about 1910; some catalogues suggest it was published in London, which is likely from the publisher (Hodder and Stoughton) but not certain. Works published anonymously in the UK have limited copyright, which has expired. The pictures are taken from paintings that are no longer in copyright.
