The first edition of Agnes Mary Frances Robinson's (1857-1944) collected poetry, selected personally from her back catalogue, with the addition of sixteen poems never before published. An immensely prolific poet, Robinson is perhaps today most widely recognised as the author of the first biography of Emily Brontë. She was the elder sister of novelist Frances Mabel Robinson (1858-1954), more commonly known by her pseudonym W.S. Gregg.£ 50.00 Antiquates Ref: 22221
