Notes

Second edition, presentation copy inscribed by Lady Jane Shelley, Shelley's daughter-in-law, "The Countess of Malmesbury, from J. Shelley", on the front binder's blank. Jane Shelley was motivated to produce this memoir of her father-in-law as a response to his biography by Thomas Jefferson Hogg, which was published in 1858 to unfavourable reviews. In particular, the family was upset at what they perceived to be inaccuracies and fictions about the poet's life. First published in 1859, the first edition proved so popular that this second edition was published only four months later in the same year.
