Second edition (the same year as the first), enlarged with six new poems, of Byron's first major work, the book that launched the "Byronic hero", presenting Cantos 1 and 2 of Byron's autobiographical poetic romance covering his travels in Portugal, Spain, Albania and Greece, at the publication of which he "awoke, and found myself famous!".

This copy bears the ownership inscription of Rigby Graham (1931-2015), an artist who worked within the tradition of English Romanticism.
