Comments

¶ With the ink signature on the title page of Swinburne’s friend “B. W. Procter,” who wrote as Barry Cornwall, and with Swinburne’s later inscription “from / A. C. Swinburne / St. Clair. Baddeley / 1888” below it in ink. Swinburne presumably obtained the book after Procter’s death in 1874. Bookplate of collector Paul Webster on the front paste-down.
