- Fine copy. First three preliminary leaves and first free endpaper sl. foxed.

= Rare proof copy, from the library of Algernon Swinburne's youngest sister Isabel Swinburne (acc. to annot. by Frances Colchester Wemyss on upper pastedown) and with an extensive bibliographical annotation in pencil on first free endpaper by Wemmys on the printing history of the book, stating that this copy is a proof with a slightly different title-p. reading "The Queen-Mother and Rosamond" (instead of the later "The Queen-Mother. Rosamond. Two Plays"). See Wise 2, listing the first edition with the title-p. reading: "The Queen-Mother. Rosamond. Two Plays". Wemyss' note reads as follows: "This copy is the first book of A.C.S. ever printed. It was sent him as a proof of "The Queen Mother & Rosamund [sic]" & he did not like the title page, which made it seem that the name of the book poem was "The Queen Mother & Rosamund" instead of there being two separate poems - "The Queen-Mother" and "Rosamund" respectively bound together. In the first edition this is put right and there is a title-page before "Rosamund", in the middle of the book, and also several errata. There is a paper label on the first edition, with authors initial given as A.G.S. [monogrammed] J.C.W." Only a very small number of copies with the unamended title had been sold before it was withdrawn in order to cancel the first title-page. SEE ILLUSTRATION PLATE LVI.
