The Poetical Works of Robert Browning
London: Smith, Elder and Co., 1896. 2 Vols. Octavo. Bound in publisher's green cloth, with gilt motif to front board and gilt titles to spine; top edge gilt. Portrait frontispieces to both volumes. Accompanied by Robert Browning's dried buttonhole decoration from June '86, preserved in a contemporary envelope, with two related typed letters from the poet, unsigned. A somewhat used copy; bindings are rubbed, frayed at head of spine with a chip, boards scratched, with bumping to extremities, joints starting; volume one front free endpaper, half-title and frontispiece detached, binding loosened due to the preserved buttonhole and letters; volume two last page of catalogue and rear three endpapers detached. Volume one largely clean, volume two shows some staining. Bookseller's ticket on paste down of volume one, "R Waugh, Bookseller, Newcastle-Upon-Tyne". Unsophisticated copy, attractive for the romance of the buttonhole, remarkably apt for Browning.
