BROWNING, Robert (1812-1889). Poet.
Fine Autograph Poetical Quotation Signed (from his poem De Gustibus), 1 page 8vo on blind stamped crested paper, London 13 July 1871. Poetical manuscripts and quotations by Browning have become scarce - the present example is ideal for framing (the second, blank, leaf has small holes and tears, but these do not affect the first page or the text).
'What I love best in all the world
Is a castle, precipice - encurled,
In a gash of the wind-grieved / Apennine
Robert Browning / London July 13. '71'
