Tennyson's Poems

Often considered one of the finest illustrated book ever produced.

This volume, published by Edward Moxon in 1857, features illustrations by Millais, Rossetti, Holman Hunt, Mulready, Creswick, Horsley, Stanfield and Maclise. A number of the drawings for these designs are in the Birmingham collection. The five engravings by Rossetti are as follows: The Lady of Shalott(p.75), Mariana in the South (p.82), two engravings of The Palace of Art (pp. 113, 119), and Sir Galahad (p.305).
