FLORENCE IN THE POETRY OF THE BROWNINGS: Being a Selection of the Poems of Robert and Elizabeth Barrett Browning Which have to do with the History, the Scenery and the Art of Florence, Edited by Anna Benneson McMahon

(Chicago: A. C. McClurg, 1907).

A VERY PLEASING BOOK OF POETRY, INCLUDING ELIZABETH BARRETT BROWININGS' ON THE CASA GUIDI WINDOWS AND THE DANCE AND ROBERT BROWNINGS' ON THE RING AND THE BOOK, FRA LIPPO LIPPI AND OTHERS. The Brownings made Florence their home for the 15 years of their married life. 'To both of them, the history, scenery, the art of Florence, was a continual inspiration; poems and correspondence alike show the supreme place it held in the affections. "The most beautiful of the cities devised by man, " said Mrs. Browning.'
Interspersed throughout are illustrations which allow the reader to identify many elements of the poems with a corresponding picture. A very pretty binding on this copy as well. Item #31304

Second printing and edition, apparently a reissue of the first printing. With over sixty full-page illustrations from photographs. 8vo, publisher's handsome forest-green cloth, the spine and upper cover lettered in gilt and pictorially decorated with the Florentine fleurs-de-lis in lighter green, t.e.g. 230, 3 ads. pp. A very fine copy, bright, clean, tight and sound.
