An attractively bound set of Byron's works, published by his friend and publisher John Murray (1778-1843). "With the breakdown of Byron's marriage in 1816 and his (self-) exile in Italy, their friendship was sustained in a correspondence that is one of the most lively and revealing of the period" (ODNB).

The last two volumes are published by John Fowler Dove (1787-1866), who worked for Murray and who also published the "Dove's English Classics" series.
