Poems and Drawings of Elizabeth Siddal

I recently bought Poems and Drawings of Elizabeth Siddal, published by Wombat Press in 1978. I'm so impressed with this slim hardcover book. There isn't much out there that collects Siddal's poetry and art together, much less in such a beautiful edition.

Title page with self-portrait.

A scan of a hand-written letter from Georgiana Burne-Jones.

Lady Clare in watercolour. From a private collection.
