PORTRAIT OF BEATRICE CENCI, BY GUIDO.
When Shelley sent Peacock his translation of the manuscript detailing the Cenci story, he said that his tragedy was to be published with a print from Guido's portrait of Beatrice. As far as I am aware, this has not until now been done. My friend Mr. W. B. Scott, sympathizing in my desire to put Shelley's wish into effect, even at this late hour, kindly undertook to etch a plate; and the result is the frontispiece of the present volume.
