Edward Moxon, Son & Co. 1869 to 1871 was then bought by Ward, Lock & Tyler. The purchasers used the Moxon title for a further six years and in 1877 the name of Edward Moxon finally disappeared from the list of London publishers.
William Michael Rossetti 1829 1919 was an English writer and critic born in London and one of the seven founder members of the Pre-Raphaelite Brotherhood in 1848, and became the movement's unofficial organizer and bibliographer. He edited the Brotherhood's literary magazine The Germ which published four issues in 1850 and wrote the poetry reviews for it. He was commissioned (between 1870 and 1873) for Moxon's Popular Poets series, the introductions of which William Michael Rossetti collected in Lives of Some Famous Poets (1878). However, this does not include his most notable work as a literary critic. In 1868 William Michael Rossetti introduced Whitman to the English public with a volume of his poetical works. William Michael Rossetti's friendship with Edward Trelawny afforded him access to interesting materials on Byron and Shelley, and in 1870 William Michael Rossetti published a two-volume exegesis of Shelley.
