Poems by Robert Browning [1900]

£60.00

Product description

First published in 1897, this is an early reprint published in 1900 by George Bell & Sons. Attractive Pre-Raphaelite style illustrations by Byam Shaw with an introduction by Richard Garnett.

From the introduction: "No modern English poet comes so near as Robert Browning to presenting a panorama of life. He was a man of very wide reading and a corresponding compass of knowledge; he had overflowing human sympathies and the keenest eye for the picturesque in man and nature; he had lived in foreign countries; above all, he was objective to a fault."

Good to Very Good condition. Untrimmed edges, gilt lettering and top edge of text block, with decorative embossed boards and decorative end papers. However the front board feels a bit loose and there is yellowing and brown spots on the pages. Light rubbing wear to the spine and corners. A former owner's name is written on the front end paper.
