Christina Rossetti with Dante Gabriel Rossetti

Carr reported in 1987 in his History of the QTP that he had published one impression of the back-to-back poems of Christina Rossetti (1830-1894) with her brother Dante Gabriel Rossetti. Two impressions have been seen, the second numbered 71, so it was probably published before 1987.
