The American collector Morris H. Parrish assembled one of the finest libraries of Victorian literature anywhere in the world between the First World War and his death in 1944, with a particular focus on original condition and acquiring both English and American first editions. The bulk of the collection, containing over 6,500 volumes and 1,250 manuscripts, and formerly housed in his residence Dormy House in Pine Valley, New Jersey, was bequeathed to Princeton University Library. Another copy of Jane Eyre is recorded in Princeton's holdings, so the present copy is presumably a duplicate deaccessioned in or around 1959.
