Robert Browning

This title containing the poems of Robert Browning is not listed in Carr's History of the QTP, so may have been issued after 1987. He gave it number 92 in the series, a number that was also applied to editions of poems by Blake, Flecker, Kipling and Khayyam. This title was issued after several editions of the poems of Robert Browning and Elizabeth Barrett Browning, back-to-back.

Hetty Beauchamp, the 17 year-old heroine of What Hetty Did, liked the poetry of Robert Browning and was studying it for her A-level exams, as did Carr when he was 17 years old, but for his School Certificate.

Notes: This volume is so full of poems there is no space for anything else; they spill over onto the rear cover. The scan makes the book look a brighter blue than it actually is.

Five other titles are also numbered 92: William Blake 9-10, James Elroy Flecker 3, Rudyard Kipling and Omar Khayyam 5.

Carr dedicated the book to Mr Rankin, his English teacher at Castleford Secondary School, who introduced him to Browning in 1928.
