William Michael Rossetti
A short-lived periodical subtitled "Thoughts towards Nature in Poetry, Literature and Art," The Germ was established by the Pre-Raphaelite Brotherhood. The title is not taken from the notion of a germ as bacteria, but rather from the image of seed germ - as in "the germ of an idea" suggesting the growth and flourishing of the human imagination. The microfilm reel uploaded here is a 1901 facsimile of the 1850 original.
