Rossetti's eight-page preface to the book which presents nearly 300 hitherto unpubished poems: "My sister Christina Rossetti- beloved by me, admired, and I may say reverenced- died on 29 December 1894, aged 64. There was an immediate, a very wide, an an exceedingly strong outburst of eulogy of her in the public press, both as woman and as poetess; an outburst which must have fully convinced me- had I not known it already- that she is regarded as one of the truly important figures in British poetical literature of the nineteenth century... and as soon as the conditions admitted of it, I resolved to put into print any verses of hers which I could find, such as would sustain her poetical reputation... looked carefully through the materials which she had left behind her... and perceived that the amount of her unpublished verse was considerably in excess fo what I had surmised. Sunnin to spine and upper covers, browntoning to just front pastedown, else fine copy of an important and scarce Large Paper edition of Christina's poetry, with a fine provenance.
