Photocopy of a transcript of a notebook in which Thomas Rooke documents conversations with Edward Burne-Jones. The conversations were held from 1895 to 1898. Georgiana Burne-Jones created the transcription in the early 1900s. The photocopy was made for research conducted by Mary Lago for her book, Burne-Jones talking (published 2012). Thomas Rooke (1806-1858) was a studio assistant to Edward Burne-Jones (1833-1898), an English artist. Georgiana Burne-Jones (1840-1920) was married to Edward Burne-Jones. The notebook and original transcript are presumed lost. The photocopy is part of the Mary Lago Collection at the University of Missouri Libraries.
