After her marriage, Felicia Dorothea Browne became known as Mrs. A. Hemans. This collage of wood engravings and pressed flowers incorporates her bookplate. Bookplates, many of which were custom-engraved, were popular in England. This one resembles those of well-respected wood engraver Thomas Bewick, who is known for his images of birds and other aspects of natural history. NYPL, Pforzheimer Collection
