Henry Austin Dobson was born January 18, 1840. A London firm published his first volume of poetry in 1873, Vignettes in Rhyme and Vers de Societe. This was a collection of Dobson's poems that had appeared mostly in St. Paul's magazine, then under the editorship of Anthony Trollope. A second edition was published in 1874 and a third in 1875. Throughout the rest of his career, his volumes of poetry were published in Britain and America. Dobson died in 1921.
