Dante Gabriell Rossetti with Christina Rossetti

Carr reported in 1987 is his History of the QTP that he had published one impression of the back-to-back poems of Dante Gabriel Rossetti (1834-1896) with his sister Christina Rossetti. Two impressions have been seen, the second numbered 71, so was probably published before 1987.

If you enter the ISBN 0900847352 in an ISBN search the author of this book is shown as Estelle C.L. Schumacher, who is also the publisher. I wonder where that came from?
