    Description

    Dante Gabriel Rossetti Autograph Letters Signed. Two letters, one trimmed, 4.5" x 7.25" and 4.5" x 3.25" respectively, n.p., n.d. [London]. Noted English poet, illustrator, painter and translator, Dante Rossetti sent these brief, friendly notes to unknown recipients, although one is addressed to "My dear Wm." This first letter, to William, mentions "a pressing matter of business," because of which Rossetti hopes to reschedule their meeting time from Monday to Wednesday. It is signed "Yours affect. DGR." The second, trimmed letter was written in response to a request for a comment; Rossetti writes that "I could not give any distinct answer just at present," and signs the letter "Yours very truly, D.G. Rossetti." The untrimmed letter has been affixed to a 6" x 10" piece of heavy paper, which also features two of Rossetti's printed poems, A Superscription and Sea-Limits, clipped from unknown publications. Both letters are age toned and bear minor soiling. Very good condition.

    The pre and post sales experience was wonderful and flawless. Heritage has the best in-house operation I have ever seen and their people are not only professional but fun to work with, especially Steve C.

    As for Heritage's online system… Yes the interface is more complex than what we are used to with SAN but what is behind that interface is amazing for sellers and buyers alike. It is real time and for a real serious auction buyer there is nothing better in the auction industry, bar none.
