Very Good. Book A first edition of Robert Browning's Prince Hohenstiel-Schwangau Saviour of Society, bound in its original publisher's cloth. The poem, which takes the French Emperor Napoleon III as its subject, was largely written in Florence in the early 1860s before apparently being abandoned. It appears that the poem was largely forgotten while Browning worked on Dramatis Personae and The Ring and the Book, which raised his profile and commercial appeal. In 1871, following the Franco-Prussian War and the forced end of Napoleon's reign, Browning dusted off his lengthy poem and made some revisions and additions before publishing it as Prince Hohenstiel-Schwangau in December 1871. Condition: In original blue cloth binding. Externally, sound, although with some light rubbing to the head and tail of the spine. Internally, firmly bound, bright and generally clean, although with some foxing to the endpapers and title page. Overall: VERY GOOD.
