This is an engraved proof after a now lost drawing by Rossetti used for the title page of Christina Rossetti's 'Goblin Market and other Poems' (1862). The envelope in which it came is inscribed: Lucy Faulkener (sic) [in pencil] / Early meetings at Burne Jones' in Gt Russell St [ink]. Recent research suggests that Lucy Faulkner engraved the wood block for this image.
