Regular price $200.00 Sale

Sonnets from the Portuguese, written ca. 1845–1846 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.
