Rogers (Grolier Club) 17. Warde and Haas 8. One of the earliest design efforts by Rogers, apparently just the second title he designed at Riverside Press where he would become one of the finest book creators of his era. Alexander (1837-1917) met John Ruskin in 1882 and showed him her illustrated manuscript of "Roadside Songs of Tuscany". Ruskin purchased the manuscript (and another by Alexander on an Etrurian tomb) , published the second work in 1883, and "Roadside Songs" in 1884-1885. Ruskin remained friends with Alexander until he died ten years later, and "public demand for Francesca's work continued ... 'Tuscan Songs' was an elaborate and profusely illustrated reproduction of her earlier work" - Paul R. Baker. Warde and Haas also mention a limited edition printed on Japanese paper and bound in full vellum. .
