About this Item

First quarto edition complete on one volume. RARE. Only five copies are listed in OCLC. With numerous fine steel engravings embracing the principle female characters, landscapes and historical subjects, an engraved pictorial half-title and fine engraved portrait of Byron as frontispiece. Thick quarto, in the publisher’s original beautifully decorated brick-red cloth, the upper cover with a classical lute playing female figure and lettering in gilt and further decoration in black, the spine decorated with a theatrical masks motif in black and blind. xxviii, 740pp. A handsome copy with great shelf appeal, the tissue guards a bit spotted on occasion, the front inner hinge tender due to weight of the text-block, the gauze is still strong, binding is in quite nice condition just a tad mellowed by age. A RARE AND ATTRACTIVE COLLECTION OF LORD BYRON WORKS. Lyon’s quarto one volume edition, accompanied by especially fine 19th Century American steel engravings. The printer was for several decades the official printer for the state of New York. Byron’s text is that of John Murray’s standard edition of 1855, and the included notes are mostly the author’s own. The "Life of Byron" supplied here is an abridge version of Thomas Moore’s famous 1835 biography. Moore was Byron’s friend and literary executor. Bookseller Inventory # 22658
