Beerbohm's wonderfully witty sketches of Rossetti and his friends. Beerbohm warns “I must warn you, not to regard as perfectly authentic any of the portraits that I here present to you. Rossetti ‘to my gaze was ne]er vouchsared.’ Nor did I ever set eyes on Coventry Patmore or Ford Madox Brown or John Ruskin or Robert Browning. Nor did I see any one of the others until he had long passed th age at which he nknew Rossetti. Old drawings and paintings, early photographs and the accounts of eye-witnesses, have not, however been my only aids”.
