Book Description: London: Smith, Elder and Co., 1868-9, 1868. 4 volumes, foolscap octavo (166 × 102 mm). Contemporary reddish-brown morocco by Holloway, spines gilt-lettered in two compartments, others with gilt quatrefoil ornaments and small corner-pieces, boards ruled in gilt with a two-line fillet, board-edges gilt with a floral roll tool, turn-ins gilt with a palmette roll, gilt edges. Housed in a dark brown cloth slipcase. Spines a little darkened and gilt faded in places, sides a little marked in the grain, endpapers browned from turn-ins, still an excellent set. Bookplates of Frederick Locker. First edition, presentation copy to Frederick Locker-Lampson, a very early presentation between the two poets, if not the earliest. Each volume is inscribed by Browning at the head of the title page. The first volume is inscribed "Frederick Locker from his friend RB. Dec: 6 '68." The second and third, "Robert Browning to his friend Frederick Locker", undated. The fourth is inscribed "To F. Locker Esq. With repeated assurance of the true regards of Robert Browning. 91. Victoria Street. Feb. 27 '69." Laid into the first volume is a six-line poem in Browning's autograph on Athenaeum Club stationery, beginning "Here you behold us, Eve & Adam " which remains apparently unpublished. On 6 July 1874 Locker married his second wife, the children's writer Hannah Jane Lampson, whose surname he added to his own. He gave these volumes to her as an engagement present, noting the fact on the blanks facing the inscribed titles. In the first volume, he has written, "Transferred to J.L. 5 May 1874. F.L. Robert Browning was the donor, Janie Lampson is the owner." His inscription in volume II reads, "Transferr'd to Jane Hannah Lampson", initialled by him and with the same date. Volume III has a similar inscription, "Transferr'd to H. Jane Lampson", also initialled, but with the following day's date; as does volume IV, now just "Jane Lampson", and with the jocular couplet added below: "I'm Jane's! I belong to her own dear self! Read, and return me to yonder shelf." A fine association copy of Browning's magnum opus, charmingly re-presented by Locker to his second wife. The book remained in their library, known as the Rowfant Library after Locker's home in Sussex, until the library was sold to an American bookseller in 1905 and dispersed. Ashley I, 120-21; Barnes RB 19; Rowfant Library, p. 143 ("Presentation copy, with autograph inscription in each volume and autograph poems inserted in Vols 1 and 4"); Sterling 89; Tinker 425; Wise, Browning, pp. 27-8.

Book Description: Smith, Elder and Co., London, 1871. 1/2 Leather Over Marbled Board. Book Condition: Fine. These twenty-four volumes of the works of Robert Browning were published seperately between 1871 and 1885 by Smith, Elder and Company in London. Of the set, twenty-two are first editions, the others are very early printings. Following a venerable tradition of fine book collecting, a set of uniform bindings has been created especially for these booksL an original, yet classic design in period style -- half leather over marbled boards. A thoroughly distinctive marbling pattern, created by a unique chemical process, perfectly sets off the olive-green leather spines decorated with exceptionally fine gilt tooling among five raised bands. Two leather labels on spine, one black and one darker green, complete the overall design. Without a doubt this is one of the finest modern bindings we have seen. Bookseller Inventory # 022369

Book Description: Chapman & Hall, 1864. Hardcover. Book Condition: Fine. 1st Edition. 8vo, original embossed cloth Spine lightly faded, inner hinges strained as usual, some marginal pencil scoring to text, otherwise a very good copy with a rare inscription. Preserved in a half-morocco slipcase. First edition. Presentation copy, inscribed on the half-title to "Mrs Grant Duff from Robert Browning, May 30, '64". Mrs. Duff was an acquaintance of Browning's; some copies of several letters from him to her are laid in. Comprised of eighteen poems, this was the first book published by Browning after the death of his wife & his return to England after a long residency in Italy. It heralded a renewal of Browning's poetic work after an extended silence. Though in some measure a continuation of his exuberant & eclectic two-volume collection Men and Women, Dramatis Personae, despite its title, is essentially less dramatic than those earlier volumes. Often speaking in propria persona, & addressing contemporary issues in argumentative tones, the poems are notable for their use of colloquial speech. Often in the background is the poet's sorrow at the death of his wife, Elizabeth Barrett, whom he had married in 1846; indeed, the book returns repeatedly & agonizingly to the theme of love, both human & divine. It includes some of Browning's grandest poems before The Ring and the Book - which followed it in 1868; notably, "Caliban upon Setebos", which examines the nature of primitive man, drawing on Darwin's On the Origin of Species, "Rabbi Ben Ezra", enunciating Browning's considered philosophy of life, & the long, skeptical examination of spiritualism, "Mr. Sludge, 'the Medium'".

Book Description: Smith, Elder 868-69, London: hardcover. 2 FIRST EDITION of Browning’s famous work, with Roman numerals on Vol. 3’s spine and Arabic on the remaining three. E. M. FORSTER’S COPY, WITH HIS SIGNATURE (twice). WITH A CUT-SIGNATURE TIPPED-IN OF ROBERT BROWNING. The "ring" from this work’s title is the wedding band Browning gave to his wife—after her death, he wore it on a chain around his neck. The book referenced by the title is, according critic Charles Wesley Hodell, a soiled collection of documents relating to a Franceschini murder trial that occurred in Florence in 1698, likely assembled by a lawyer at the time, that Browning purchased in the marketplace of San Lorenzo for 1 lira. PROVENANCE: Edward M. Forster (1879-1970) "was an English novelist, short story writer, essayist and librettist. He is known best for his ironic and well-plotted novels examining class difference and hypocrisy in early 20th-century British society. Forster’s humanistic impulse toward understanding and sympathy may be aptly summed up in the epigraph to his 1910 novel Howards End: ‘Only connect ’. His 1908 novel, A Room with a View, is his most optimistic work, while A Passage to India (1924) brought him his greatest success" (Wikipedia). While Forster did not personally know Browning, as he was still a child at the time of Browning’s death, he held him in high regard. His reading list at King’s College included "Paradise Lost some Kipling, and a good deal of Robert Browning and Christina Rossetti" (Sarker, p. 22). Note: Sherborne School, Dorset, is the same school attended by Alfred North Whitehead, Alan Turing, Lord Swynnerton, John Cowper Powys, Jeremy Irons, Cecil Day-Lewis, etc. Note: Count Guido Franceschini was found guilty of the murders of his young wife Pompilia Comparini and her parents, having suspected his wife of having an affair with a young cleric, Giuseppe Caponsacchi. "The poem is based on a real-life case. Under Roman law at the time, trials were not held in open court but rather by correspondence, whereupon each witness was required to submit a written statement for future adjudication. Browsing in a flea market in Florence in 1860, Browning came across a large volume of these written statements relating to the 1698 Franceschini case, and bought it on the spot. This volume - later known as the Yellow Book, after the colour of its aged covers - struck Browning as an excellent basis for a poem, but he was unable to get any further than the basic idea and often offered it as a subject to other writers, notably Alfred Tennyson, upon which to base a poem or novel. Luckily for posterity, there were no takers, and following his wife’s death and his return to England, Browning revived his old plan for a long poem based on the Roman murder case almost eight years after the idea had first struck him." Hodell, Charles Wesley. An Essay On Robert Browning’s The Ring And The Book. Whitefish, MT: Kessinger, 2006; Sarker, Sunil Kumar. E. M. Forster’s A Passage to India. New Delhi: Atlantic, 2007. 4 volumes. 8vo. [iv], 245, [1], [ads 1]; [iv], 251; [iv], 249; [iv], 245 pp. Occasional light scattered foxing to free end-leaves. Original black-stamped green cloth, gilt-stamped spines, by Harrison [59 Pall Mall, bookseller to the Queen], in quarter gilt-stamped calf over blue cloth slipcase; Vol. 3 rear hinge cracked with light front pastedown soiling, Vols. 1 & 2 hinges cracked. ROBERT BROWNING’S SIGNATURE tipped-in Vol. I opposite title-page. Ownership signatures of W. J. [--- ?] Settle (Sherborne, Dorset, Feb. 21, 1869) and F. Rowlandson. OWNERSHIP SIGNATURES OF E. M. FORSTER Vol. 2 to free front end-leaf and title-page. Attractive copy. Very good. Bookseller Inventory # LV1761

Book Description: Smith, Elder, & Co, London, 1888. Hardcover. 235 x 159 mm (9 1/4 x 6 1/4"). 17 volumes. First Complete Edition. ONE OF 250 COPIES ON HAND-MADE PAPER. EXCELLENT CONTEMPORARY PURPLE MOROCCO (stamped "The Knickerbocker Press" on rear turn-in), front covers with flourish or gilt monogram (perhaps "G") at center, wide raised bands, spine panels with gilt titling, very broad turn-ins with simple gilt ruling, violet watered silk pastedowns and free endleaves, morocco hinges, edges untrimmed and all but three volumes UNOPENED. With frontispiece in five volumes. A Large Paper Copy. Wise, p. 235. Spines uniformly faded to a pleasing chestnut brown, shadow of a silk place marker on two pages, otherwise AN EXTREMELY FINE SET, with almost no wear to the bindings, and the text nearly pristine. This is a copy of the first collection to be called a complete edition of the works in verse of Robert Browning (1812-89), one of the major British poets of the 19th century. Though he was overshadowed in his day by Tennyson and his wife Elizabeth Barrett Browning, our author has experienced a much more lasting influence stylistically than either. As Day says, "Intellectuals have consistently praised Browning . . . for his psychological portraits and his poetic style. Browning could write mellifluous verse like Tennyson's and Swinburne's, but he much preferred either a conversational quality catching the idiom and cadence of actual speech or a cerebral diction challenging the brain power of his readers." In this respect, "Browning is the great exemplar of a revolutionary new poetic diction for his age, as Spenser, Dryden, and Wordsworth had been in earlier periods of English poetry." The text here is printed on excellent textured paper, surrounded by immense margins. Although the decoration of this set is very reserved, the bindings are nevertheless carefully executed using high quality materials, and it is clear from the unopened state of the volumes that they have received very little use. First Complete Edition. ONE OF 250 COPIES ON HAND-MADE PAPER. Bookseller Inventory # ST11369
