Henry Treffry Dunn abandoned his position as a bank clerk when he was 24 years old and became a painter.

William Michael Rossetti states in his prefatory note that Dunn's recollections are "perfectly genuine, and give, from the writer's point of view, a very fair notion of what Dante Rossetti did in those years, and what he was like."
