      Est: £1,000 - £1,500

      Autograph letter signed ("Robert Browning"), to Walter B. Slater, book collector and friend of Thomas J. Wise, returning a book which had belonged to the forger Thomas Powell ("...an example of the practices of Thomas Powell, its original owner, – which consisted in affecting to forge, in sport, the signatures of his acquaintance in order to subsequently induce the belief, when his serious forgeries should be discovered, that he was simply a monomaniac on the matter of an irresistible itch at imitating other folks' writing – which he did only too adroitly as the Mercantile Firm which employed him found by experience. The signatures in the present case are very like indeed – although with – to my eye – a discernible difference, – a slight one, certainly. He was well acquainted with the persons supposed to have written on the fly-leaf, and had letters &c; from each of them. My own hand-writing has, no doubt, changed somewhat in the course of years; and, at the time when I knew Powell, much resembled what you see intended for it..."); and telling Slater that Powell "was forced to fly the country, thereby avoiding the punishment he richly deserved" and that "he may still be alive for aught I know"; Browning then goes on to denounce Powell's account of EBB [in Living Authors of England (1849)] ("...This precious farrago was referred to, in the Academy, a short while since, as containing 'notable information respecting my wife which deserved the notice it had not found in the article just out in the new Biographical Dictionary' [the Dictionary of National Biography, 1886]: the fact being that he never saw her in his life, nor had any other means of informing himself than by what he could glean from her correspondence with Mr Horne; on purely literary subjects"; going on to recount the dealings he and Dickens had with him after he was exposed: "Dickens exposed the poor fellow at the time – myself was abroad. Thus you have all I can well communicate on a disagreeable subject. By the way, the last letter I ever received from Powell, with whom I had ceased to hold intercourse, was impudently written throughout as if by the brother of Dickens; Henry, long since dead – that is, since that time"; autograph envelope ("Walter B. Slater, Esq"), 4 pages, on blue-grey writing paper, engraved address, 8vo, Warwick Crescent, 6 November 1886

      Est: £3,000 - £5,000

      BROWNING, Robert (1782-1866, father of the poet). A collection of fifty-eight sketches (portraits or caricatures) including 51 in pen and ink, heightened with watercolour, illustrating three short tales, with explanatory dialogue and narrative written below in autograph; and seven portraits in pencil without text, the sketches measuring approximately 155 x 115 mm, mounted on the numbered leaves of an album, oblong 4to, blanks, contemporary leather-backed boards; in a black morocco case. Provenance: purchased from James F. Drake, New York, Woodin Sale, 2 December 1941, lot 73, $20. The illustrated stories include: 'The Tragedy', 12 pages; 'The Swindlers', 20 pages; and 'The Enquiry', 17 pages, the last concerning a group of unprincipled tavern characters taken in by an apparently gullible young man who at the end turns out to be a thief. The subjects of the pencil portraits include 'Barabbas', the Brownings' housekeeper, caricatures of Keats and Dr Johnson, and three others. Robert Browning senior was an aimiable and affectionate parent, and the caricatures may have been intended for the entertainment of his children. In his youth, after an unhappy period administering a plantation in St Kitts, he had hoped to pursue his interest in painting, but his father refused to subsidise him. He exercised his natural ability as a caricaturist in the style of Gillray or Cruikshank, while his personal taste was for Dutch genre paintings. After Elizabeth's death, Robert and Pen Browning often passed the summer with Robert's father, in France.
