Charlotte Brontë (1816-1855) was an English poet and novelist and sister of Patrick Branwell Brontë (1817-1848). They were the siblings of Emily and Anne Brontë, also English writers of the 19th century. From an early age, the Brontë children collaborated to dream up imaginary worlds and created miniature books from their stories and poetry. They first wrote of the Glasstown Confederacy, a fantasy world inspired by a box of twelve wooden toy soldiers given to Branwell by his father, and later Branwell and Charlotte wrote about Angria, while Emily and Anne created Grondol.

Amy Lowell was an American Imagist poet and Thomas James Wise was an English bibliographer and book collector.
