Dealer Notes
Rossetti is replying to a letter from John H. Ingram, 1849-1916, biographer of Poe, Marlowe, and Oliver Maddox Brown, journalist, and reviewer. Ingram wrote to Rossetti requesting a copy for review of her 'new edition' of Goblin Market, and other Poems, first published by Macmillan in 1862. 'I will forward your note to Mr. Macmillan,' Rossetti writes, '& he will judge of the wisdom of closing with your offer of a mention'. She wrote to Mr Macmillan, also on Saturday evening, noting Ingram's request: 'I dare say you may not think it worth while to send Mr. Ingram a copy, tho' I suppose reviews are to be desired & I own to liking friendly ones'. Ingram had published a facsimile of a poem by Rossetti in Pictorial World under his pseudonym 'Don Felix de Salamanca'. It is evident from this letter that she had not known Ingram's identity until he wrote to her: 'I did receive my facsimile, but without any suspicion of your concern in it: now let me thank you for it'. Writing to her brother Gabriel a few days later, Rossetti wrote: 'Do you recollect your being unable to identify a certain 'Don Felix de Salamanca' who published my fac-simile in a No. of the Pictorial World? He turns out to be a certain Mr. Ingram from whom I have heard once or twice, and who would now like to send a notice of my fresh edition to the same periodical ...'
