Footnotes

  • A presentation copy inscribed to Lady Granby (1856-1937), an artist who "pushed the boundaries of acceptable bohemianism" and "was one of the central figures of the Souls, the group of aristocratic friends which formed around A. J. Balfour and the Tennant sisters in the last decades of the nineteenth century... [they] prided themselves on their intellectual interests, their avant-garde artistic taste, and their cultural sophistication" (ODNB).
