Rose was the model. The original etching was etched in 1919. Rose's interest in books had been aroused by the experience of observing Norman writing his first two successful novels, A Curate in Bohemia (1913) and The Magic Pudding (1918), and she began to take an interest in collecting her own books. Her bookplate is titled Lysistrata. On the two Mitchell Library proofs Norman printed 'Rose Lindsay her Book. NL' in ink, centre right. The original etching was never published.
