A Trip to Paris and Belgium
Dante Gabriel Rossetti
Document Title: [A Trip to Paris and Belgium / Travel Sonnets]
Author: Dante Gabriel Rossetti
Date of composition: 1849 October
Type of Manuscript: fair copy
Note: The manuscript consists of two holograph leaves plus a small leaf attached later with a note by WMR. One of the holograph
leaves is twice the size of the other, which has been torn
in order to make both into a small letter packet. The larger leaf is folded twice, once vertically and then again horizontally.
The smaller leaf is folded horizontally. Thus folded, DGR
was able to address the packet to George Tupper and enclose the whole thing for posting (Geo. Tupper/25 Clemont Lane/Lombard
Street). The note by WMR was added much later when he was editing his brother's poems.
