"Elizabeth Barrett Browning's Poetical Works" by James Richardson, published in 1884 by Dodd, Mead and Company.


From the personal estate of Mrs. Robert Hoe Dodd (?), includes her antique Victorian calling card, which I found tucked in the second volume upon inspection after purchasing these in a town just 45 miles north of the Publisher's headquarters in New York City.

Mr. & Mrs. Robert Hoe Dodd were the son and daughter-in-law of Dodd, Mead's founder, Moses Woodruff Dodd, Mr Robert living from 1848-1934.The inclusion of the calling card would indicate that this lovely book set was either the property of Mrs. Dodd or that they were gifted from the Robert Dodd's to someone else. In any case, super fun!

This is a complete set of 5 leather bound volumes featuring leather spines and board corners, with handmade marbled paper on the covers and in the end papers, gilt upper block edge. Volume I has a striking etched portrait of Mrs. Browning with vellum protecting insert opposite the title page. These books are "very good -" to "very good", no loose, torn or folded pages. No writing. The bindings on all volumes are tight, all board hinges are intact, none are split. The books are all intact, with no significant flaws. Volume I, III, and IV have their leather spine heads chipped, with IV being the most so.

Gorgeous set, complete. See accompanying images for complete condition details.

Will look amazing on your mantle, bookshelf, office or as a gift!

Will ship in two boxes, carefully packaged and fully insured.
