Description

Waugh (Evelyn) Rossetti: His Life and Works, first edition, frontispiece portrait and 7 plates, some minor scattered spotting to fore-edge, original cloth, some minor bumping to spine ends and corners, dust-jacket, darkened at spine and head of panels, short closed tear to head of lower panel and of upper fore-edge, surface soiling, still a near-fine copy overall, preserved in custom slip-case, 8vo, 1928.

⁂ An excellent example of Waugh's first commercial publication.

Rossetti generally received favourable reviews although it was subject to a harsh critique by an anonymous reviewer (in fact T. Sturge Moore) in the Times Literary Supplement, in which Waugh was infamously referred to as "a dainty Miss of the Sixties".
