Rossetti clarifies the facts upon which Mr. Tibbs based a copyright claim regarding the Autotype Company. Rossetti stipulates his position.
Prior to this letter, there had been multiple controversies involving copyrights to various Dante Rossetti works in the wake of his death and the ensuing rush by many to open exhibitions and publish books on Dante Rossetti. For example, William Rossetti threatened legal action regarding a Dante Rossetti unpublished poem (Letters 436) reportedly included in one particular memoir, resulting in the last-minute excision from the book.
