Frederick Startridge Ellis

Frederick Startridge  Ellis

Born Richmond, Surrey. Bookseller and author. He published the works of William Morris and Dante Gabriel Rossetti, who were also close friends.
Rossetti wrote a limerick about him:
"There’s a publishing party named Ellis
Who’s addicted to poets with bellies:
He has at least two -
One in fact, one in view -
And God knows what will happen to Ellis".
Died Bedford Hotel, Sidmouth, Devon.
