About this Item

Octavo, brown cloth & boards (hardcover), gilt letters, fold-out family chart, 272 pp. Fine, in a Near-Fine dust jacket with lightly rubbed edges. From dust jacket: Though much has been written of Byron's incestuous affair with his half-sister, Augusta, this is the first book wholly devoted to her. It reveals a charming and attractive woman whose lively interests, coupled with a bright, humane nature, gave her an extraordinary hold on the poet until his death.This finely wrought portrait of a cultivated woman opens new windows on the poet's life and works, as it explains our knowledge of social custom in the Regency era.
