Sonnets From The Portuguese, to which is prefaced a "Little Journey" to the home of the author: written by Elbert Hubbard
BROWNING, Elizabeth Barrett; HUBBARD, Elbert; LESLIE, Amy
Sonnets from the Portuguese, written ca. 18451846 and published first in 1850, is Brown's collection of 44 love sonnets, the best since those of Shakespeare. Elbert Hubbard's biographic introduction is a touching addition to the collection, as is the enclosed leaflet by Amy Leslie doing justice to the fine quality books produced at East Aurora.
