Dimensions: 11.5 x 8.5 cm
Note: The lithograph, along with a lithograph of
Gaetano Polidori, was tipped into a copy of
Il Losario: Poema Eroica Romanzesco di Ser Francesco Polidori, edited and augmented by his nephew Gaetano Polidori. MWR's endorsement is inscribed on verso free endpaper: “This book
contains 2 lithographs done by D.G. Rossetti at the request of his grandfather Gataeno Polidori. The head of Francesco P.
is a mere fancy-portrait; that of Gaetano P. is taken from a daguerreotype. The pencillings are the writing of Henry F. Polydore.
