A Hallmark Editions gift book of poems by Elizabeth Barrett Browning whose most famous lines,
"How do I love thee? Let me count the ways.
I love thee to the depth and breadth and height My soul can reach, when feeling out of sight
For the ends of Being and Ideal Grace..."
have inspired countless lovers ever since she published them in 1849.
This hard cover book contains The Sonnets from the Portuguese and 14 other poems. Nancy Holmes selected the poetry included. It is illustrated with prints of etchings as romantic as the poems. The volume has decorative boards and the glossy photograph on the cover is by Jack Jonathan.
Near fine book in near fine jacket. Something, probably the previous owner's name has been whited out inside the cover. Book is clean otherwise.
