Description du livre James Bowden, London, 1897. Hardcover. État : Very Good. LIMITED EDITION. LIMITED EDITION. Hardcover. 12mo. 1 of 500 copies. Includes prefatory note by her brother, William Rossetti that discusses the history of the work and his sister's objectives in writing it. He believed that his sister's main objective was to delineate through Maude what she regarded as defects in her own character and in her attitude towards her social circle and religious obligations. Maude was written in 1850, when Christina Rossetti was only 19 years old. A few changes were made by her to the manuscript in 1874 or 1875. William states that the book is "in all senses a juvenile performance: but I think it is agreeably written and not without touches of feminine perception and discernment." Blue cloth boards with gilt title to spine and gilt facsimile of author's signature to front board. Browning to spine. Interior is very clean with minor browning to top edge of pages; text remains bright. Tight binding. Includes frontispiece copy with tissue guard of drawing of Rossetti by her brother Dante Gabriel.
