           Anna Kingsford was a woman of rare beauty. This photograph echoes Maitland’s description when he met her for the first time:

“Tall, slender, and graceful in form. Fair and exquisite in complexion. Bright and sunny in expression. The hair long and golden, but the brows and lashes dark and the eyes deep set and hazel, and by turns dreamy and penetrating. The mouth rich, full, and exquisitely formed. The broad brow prominent and sharply cut. The nose delicate, slightly curved, and just sufficiently prominent to give character to the face. And the dress somewhat fantastic as became her looks. Anna Kingsford seemed at first more fairy than human and more child than woman. (…) and made expressly to be caressed, petted and indulged”. (Anna Kingsford, Her Life, Letters, Diary and Work, George Redway, London, 1896. Vol. I, p. 32)

           This photograph appears in the middle of the first volume of the biography Anna Kingsford, Her Life, Letters, Diary and Work, by Edward Maitland; 1st edition, George Redway, London, 1896.

It appears at the beginning of the work The Story of Anna Kingsford and Edward Maitland and the New Gospel of Interpretation, by Edward Maitland.
