Autograph Letter to Sir John Simeon (waxes on, about D.G. Rossetti)
- 3pp on folded sheet. "Highwood Cottage, Fortis Green, Finchley, May 18, 1858." An early letter by Patmore (1823-1896), famed English poet and Pre-Raphaelite associate, to the baronet John Simeon who had recently published a book on John Donne, and noteworthy in Patmore's mentioning and promoting Dante Gabriel Rossetti's incipient book publication: "Gabriel Rossetti, the painter, is about to print a selection from almost unknown Italian poets previous to Dante ["Early Italian Poets," Smith, Elder adn Co., 1861]. Patmore continues: "I have seen the M.S. and am sure that the work is one which will give you great pleasure. I know of no other poetry so intense and lofty as some of these pieces, which are as ingenious and intellectual as Donne, and far more passionate." Fine.
