Notes

A very attractive copy of one of the great literary biographies of the 19th century and which "remains indispensable for students of Byron" (ODNB); it was first published in 1830 but the frontispiece and atmospheric title vignette - showing Newstead Abbey by moonlight - were specially engraved for this edition.
