Robert Browning. The Pied Piper of Hamelin, A Child's Story. 1898. Number 67 of the 100 English Vellum Edition de Luxe copies. Large folio. On vellum. Set Forth in a Series of Designs and Decorative Orders by Harry Quilter Barrister at Law and Written in Ornamental Text by Mary his Wife. London: Harry Quilter, 1898.

    Number 67 of the 100 English Vellum Edition de Luxe copies. Large folio. [56 pages] on vellum. Elaborately integrated text and illustrations in black and white throughout the copy. Two illustrations in color printed by Lemercier, with one on silk following the title page and one as the frontispiece on vellum.

    Elegantly bound in the original olive green calf with elaborate gilt tooling and lettering on the front cover. Also on the front cover are two embossed inset metal panels. The spine is lettered and ruled in gilt. Top edge gilt. Light blue endpapers with an allover design with themes from the story in dark blue. Protective tissue paper between each page. Some minor repair work to the covers and hinges. Altogether a gorgeous and very good copy.

    British poet and playwright, Robert Browning (1812 - 1889), authored this sumptuous version of the familiar German tale, The Pied Piper of Hamelin. As in all of Browning's works, this tale seems to skip along playfully through his rhythmic and humorous rhymes.
