About this Item

Small 8vo, pp. 482. Sienna cloth, stamped in gilt on spine. Corners of cover little scuffed and bumped, ends of spine little worn, ownership stamp on the title-page, o/w a VG tight copy. BAL 19456. Stowe had met Lady Byron in London in 1857, and decided she "was the most noble-hearted woman who had ever lived." Lady Byron took her into her confidence and divulged that of all her late husband's sins, the one she could not forgive was that he had been guilty of incest with his own sister. Eleven years later, after Lady Byron's death, one of Byron's mistresses published memoirs that spoke disparagingly of Lady Byron; Stowe decided that it was her Christian duty to set the record straight, and did so first with an article in the Atlantic Monthly and then with this book. Reaction was tumultuous, and "ultimately Mrs. Stowe appears to have realized that she made the worst mistake of her professional life when she publicized Lady Byron's confidences" [Gerson].
