About this Item

Two volumes. 8vo, pp. xxiv, 214; xi, 245. Illustrated with two frontis portraits and several engravings. Black cloth, stamped in gilt. Covers slightly scuffed and worn, but a nice tight set. This is actually the revised and expanded version of Trelawney's RECOLLECTIONS OF THE LAST DAYS OF SHELLEY AND BYRON, first published in 1858. Wise. Vol 2. p109. Chew. p. 266. Trelawny was intimately related with Shelley and Byron during their years in Italy. Trelawny was Shelley's closest friend in the poet's final year (it was Trelawney who snatched Shelley's heart out of the flames on the shore of Viareggio); and he was closely associated with Byron in the latter's final three years. Trelawny writes in his Preface: "No two men could be more dissimilar in all ways, yet I have seldom known two men more unhappy." Trelawney himself died three years later, having arranged for his ashes to be transported to the English Protestant Cemetery in Rome, where they were buried in a plot next to Shelley's grave.
