"New and Complete edition". With 11 very handsome engraved plates, including a portrait frontispiece and engraved vignette title page. 8vo, period three-quarter green morocco and green pebbled cloth. Spine with raised bands gilt decorated, lettered in gilt in one compartment. x, 825. A very handsome and well preserved copy with occasional light foxing to some plates. A VERY EARLY EDITION OF BYRON'S WORKS COLLECTED. It is well illustrated with attractive engraved plates, features a chronology of his life and works, a full index and extensive appendix of scholarly notes by Sir Walter Scott, Lord Jeffrey, George Crabbe and several others. Thomas Moore's notes are also included. Lord Byron was one of the leading figures of the Romantic Movement and remains today one of the most popular and romantic poets of the language. Often described as the most flamboyant and notorious of the major Romantics, Byron was both celebrated and castigated in life for his aristocratic excesses, including huge debts and numerous love affairs. He has since become regarded as one of the greatest British poets, and remains widely read and influential. Among Byron's best-known works are the narrative poems Don Juan and Childe Harold's Pilgrimage and the short lyric She Walks in Beauty. Bookseller Inventory # 14127
