[Rossetti, Lucy etc.] English Female Artists

I would so love to own this

[Rossetti, Lucy etc.] English Female Artists
Clayton, Ellen C.
London: Tinsley Brothers, 1876.

First edition. Two volumes. Original light blue blindstamped cloth. Woodcut devices throughout as head and tailpieces, chapter initials, by Walter Crane. Rare treatise on contemporary women artists such as Helen Allingham, Laura Theresa Alma-Tadema, Lucy Rossetti (Madox Brown), E.V.B. and many more. Spine on volume two neatly split along margins, some slight cloth discoloration, but on the whole a very good, tight set of a scarce and attractive work.
