Item Description: London: Thomas Davison / John Hunt, 1819-1824, 1824. Hard Cover. Book Condition: Near Fine. First Edition. Six volumes. First editions, Vol. I quarto, Vols. 2-3 and 5-6 foolscap octavo, Vol. 4 demy octavo. Finely bound by C. Walters in three-quarter dark blue morocco and tan marbled boards, with five raised bands to the spine, lettered in gilt, top edge gilt. Very good, with some light wear to the extremities, minor rubbing to the hinges and boards, bright gilt, former owner's bookplates to the front pastedowns, bookseller's plates to the rear pastedowns, Vol. 1 with some light spotting to the pages, Vols. 1 & 5 with the spine cracked and holding at the title page, Vols. 2 with minor trimming to the title and half-title pages. An unsophisticated and handsomely bound set. Wise II, 3-9. Complete in 16 Cantos, Don Juan was published in six installations from 1819-1924 in a variety of different sizes and formats. Cantos I and II were first published by Davison as a demy quarto in a printing of 1,500 copies, and 150 of these copies were sold as waste-paper after Cantos I and II were reprinted as octavos. The subsequent five volumes of Don Juan, comprising Cantos III-XVI, were published both in "Large Paper" (demy octavo) and "Small Paper" (foolscap octavo) forms, and, while the large formats are slightly scarcer, both sizes constitute first editions. Several of the Cantos were also later issued in a smaller "common" (duodecimo) edition. Don Juan is a satirical epic poem tale that, although unfinished, is widely considered the author's masterpiece. In this poem, which takes the form of a picaresque verse, Byron transforms the legendary libertine Don Juan into a naïve and easily seduced youth. Throughout the poem, Byron criticizes many of the political leaders, religious figures, prominent writers, and social conventions of his time. According to his letter to John Murray on August 24, 1819, Byron did not want to be credited for writing Don Juan, claiming that publishing a satire anonymously "helps what fun there may be." Notably, Don Juan remains unfinished as Byron died after writing only fourteen stanzas of the incomplete Canto XVII. Bookseller Inventory # LB008

Item Description: Murray, London, 1815. hardcover. Book Condition: very good. First. John L. Clawson ex-libris. Autograph presentation copy from Lord & lady Byron, with the following inscription on the half-title in Lady Byron's hand: "To Mrs. Baker, with Lord and Lady Byron's affectionate regards. May 23, 1815." Laid in are Lady Byron's visiting card her autograph signature in full - "Anne Isabella Noel Byron" and an engraved copperplate portrait. On the title page is the autograph of (Mrs.) Isabelle Baker; engraved bookplate of George Baker on a blank flyleaf. Later leather ex-libris of John Clawson. The bibliography calls for printed titles to Byron's Collected Works, which are not present here. As the "Collected Works" was not proposed for publication until July 1815, the earliest copies, i.e. May did not contain them. Lord & Lady Byron had married only the previous January, and they separated the January following, hence this may be the only volume in existence presented as a joint gift from them. Thin 8vo, full blue crushed levant, spine & sides and dentelles elaborately gilt; silk flyleaves, g.t. by Sangorski & Sutcliffe. London: John Murray, 1815. First Edition.

Item Description: Printed for John Murray, London, 1814. Hardcover. The First Printings of the Last Two Parts of "Childe Harold,"Along with Four Excellent Paintings by at least Two Artists. 219 x 137 mm (8 5/8" x 5 3/8"). Four volumes. FIRST EDITIONS of "Childe Harold's Pilgrimage," Cantos III and IV. Pleasing contemporary green straight-grain morocco, elaborately tooled in gilt and blind, covers with frame comprised of tangent cresting gilt and dove-tailed blind rolls and well as intricate floral cornerpieces in blind, raised bands, spine panels filled with animated decoration emanating from central gilt fleuron, all edges gilt. EACH VOLUME WITH AN ATTRACTIVE FORE-EDGE PAINTING depicting a location important to the poet. With folding facsimile leaf of Greek manuscript and 10 engraved plates, including frontispieces (most with tissue guards). Front pastedown to volume I with bookplate and dated signature (14-2-1968) of Alex. Bridge. Inked autograph of Mr. William White, dated December 24th, 1857, on preliminary blanks of volumes I, III, and IV; volume II inscribed and similarly dated to White "from his friend C. E. Combes." First Edition Club Byron Exhibition 5b-c; Randolph, pp. 59-60. Joints and extremities rather rubbed, spines uniformly sunned and a little marked, some light grazes to covers (all of this rather successfully masked with dye), plates with significant foxing to margins (and occasional dampstains), those lacking tissue guards with light offsetting to opposite pages, otherwise a pleasing set, the decorative bindings entirely solid, the text generally quite fresh and clean, and the fore-edge paintings very well preserved. This is an attractively bound set of an early edition of Byron's "Works," featuring four pleasing fore-edge paintings and the first appearance of Cantos III and IV of the celebrated "Childe Harold's Pilgrimage." The fore edge of volume I presents a bucolic tableau of Byron's family home, Newstead Abbey in Nottinghamshire, the stately manor in the background, pleasure craft in the abbey's Fullarton Lake, fashionable ladies and gentlemen enjoying a break in the rain, the whole beneath a broadly arching rainbow. The painting on the fore edge of volume II reproduces a view of the Bridge of Egnippo on the Greek island of Negropont. Mercantile vessels in the foreground provide significant animation, and detail in the craft as well as the crenelated structures in the middle ground are impressive. The fore-edge scene for volume III shows the Franciscan convent in Athens, filling nearly the entire painted space. And the fore-edge painting to volume IV presents a well-composed view of Verona, featuring a heavily populated broad avenue, many urban structures, a long bridge over the Adige, and a pleasant sky. They uncharacteristically appear to be the work of at least two artists. While all are at least very good, the scene on the edge of the second volume is especially sophisticated work, the painter having demonstrated notable subtlety, convincing representation, a powerful impression of movement, and charming details (like the four gulls alighting on the rocks in the foreground). We know something about the date of our four paintings because they derive from "Finden's Illustrations of the Life and Works of Lord Byron" (first published in 1833-34), involving illustrators and engravers William Westall, Edward and William Finden, Clarkson Stanfield, and Sir Augustus Wall Callcott. Apart from the paintings, this set is important because it contains (in volumes III and IV) the first printings of the final two cantos of "Childe Harold." While the first part of the poem is a fine example of what Day terms Byron's "exuberant Romanticism," the third and fourth cantos demonstrate the "Romantic pessimism" at which Byron excelled. Not usually given to overstatement, Day writes of the third canto: "hardly any other work in literature possesses the same titanic power and grand flourish." The other works in this set include early editions of "The Giaour" (1815), "The Bride of Abydos" (. Bookseller Inventory # ST12696

Item Description: Byron, Newstead, 1111. Silver. Book Condition: Good. A silver metal wax seal bearing the coat of arms of the Byron family motto "Crede Byron". Two horses flank a shield with a coronet above. The seal now has a ring on top as presumably it was converted into a pendant. Lord Byron certainly used a similar seal e.g. "red wax seal impressed with Byron's coat of arms surmounted by a coronet; postmarked ‘MayFair' and addressed to ‘Miss E. Bridget Pigot./ Southwell/Notts'." However I haven't managed to find an image of a seal to compare them to see it is was Lord Byron's or an association item or a souvenir.

The book also features several significant poems on scriptural subjects including King David and Saul, "On the Day of the Destruction of Jerusalem by Titus," and the oft-anthologized "The Destruction of Sennacherib." The poems were republished later that year accompanied by their musical arrangements. Wise I, pp. 103-4. Bookseller Inventory # ABE-3560929659

Item Description: S. and J. Ridge, Newark, 1807. FIRST EDTION, FIRST ISSUE. 2 blank leaves + TP + [v]-x = Preface + [xi]-xiii = Contents + [xiv] = Errata + [1]-187 + 2 blank leaves, Crown Octavo. First Edition, First Issue. Wise Vol. 1, p. 7.The first printing of Byron's first regularly published book, his 'juvenilia' rearranged from the privately-printed Fugitive Pieces and Poems of Various Occasions. It omits twenty of the original poems and adds twelve new ones. The first edition may be distinguished from the deceptive 'large-paper' demy-octavo reprint (also the work of the ubiquitous Ridges) by the two typographical errors on p. 114, l. 4 ("thnnder") and p. 181, l. 21 ("Thc") and sometimes (but not always) by the correct numbering of p. 171 as here. A further defining point of the first edition (and the one which established the priority of this issue) is also present: the cancellation of D3 (p. 22) with the correct reading in the second line of the poem: "Those tissues of falsehood which Folly has wove" and no footnote. Watermarked "Li" and "1806" as called for. Without the half-title. Lovely 19th-century full calf binding with gilt borders to front and back covers. Spine with five bands and ornately gilt compartments. Red morocco label on spine. Turquoise blue endpapers and all edges gilt. A lovely copy of Byron's first regularly published book.

Item Description: London 1809., 1809. English bards and Scotch reviewers. A satire. London: printed for James Cawthorn, n.d. (1809). 12mo, original drab printed boards, neatly rebacked.First edition. This poem was written by Byron as a reply to a contemptuous notice of his Hours of Idleness in the Edinburgh Review. It was also his first great poetical success; Cawthorn reprinted the book many times, often without Byron's knowledge or authorization, to meet a continuing demand. Copies of the first edition were printed on paper with an "E and P 1805" watermark; in this copy the watermark can be clearly seen on the title-page. In this copy the 7th line of page 5 reads "dispatch;" in some copies the word is misprinted "despatch." This is not an issue point, as is usually stated, but a press correction of little significance. As Wise puts it, "The change . . . was made whilst the sheets were passing through the press, and it is inconceivable that the printer would make any effort to keep the two varieties apart." Wise also notes that copies occur without the leaf of preface (present here); he tries to argue that these copies are earlier, and thus constitute a "first issue," but he is undoubtedly wrong (see Hayward); in any case, the issue with the preface, if indeed it existed, would clearly be more desirable. A fine fresh copy, with the printed boards in excellent condition. Wise I, 21; Hayward 219; CBEL III, 277. Bookseller Inventory # B575

Item Description: Longman, Hurst, Rees, and Orme . F. and C. Rivington . and J. Mawman . London. 1807., 1808. Crown 8vo. (190 x 120 mm), pp. xiii, [1], 187, [1], with half-title; D3 a cancel as usual (reading 'Those tissues of falsehood which Folly has wove': the cancellandum, known only from the Ashley copy, reads 'Those tisssues of fancy which Moriah has wove'); a fine copy in pale blue-green crushed levant by Sangorski & Sutcliffe for E. P. Dutton & Company, gilt fillets on covers, spine gilt within compartments, t.e.g., others untrimmed.First edition, the genuine first printing of Byron's first regularly-published book. It may be distinguished from the deceptive 'large-paper' demy 8vo. 'first' edition – in fact a reprint, wholly reset, also the work of the ubiquitous Ridges – by typographical errors on pp.114 ('thnnder') and 181 ('Thc'), and sometimes (but not always) by the correct numbering of p. 171 as here. A further distinction is, of course, the cancellation of D3, which was not necessary in the reprint. It was the discovery of the cancellandum which finally settled the question of priority.Hours of Idleness rearranges Byron's 'juvenilia' from his privately-printed Fugitive Pieces (1806) and Poems on Various Occasions (1807), omitting twenty of the original poems and adding twelve others. Byron modestly calls it in his Preface a 'first, and last attempt' ('it is highly improbable . that I should ever obtrude myself a second time on the Public'). He was, however, looking forward with excitement to an anticipated notice in the prestigious Edinburgh Review. When the notice came, in January 1808, it was devastating: 'The poesy of this young lord belongs to the class which neither gods nor men are said to permit [i.e., mediocrity]. Indeed, we do not recollect to have seen a quantity of verse with so few deviations from that exact standard. His effusions are spread over a dead flat, and can no more get above or below the level, than if they were so much stagnant water.'Byron at once took up a satire he had begun and set aside, entitled 'British Bards', and revised it into English Bards and Scotch Reviewers. This splendid reply to a perfectly justified slating of his weak 'first fruits' was published in 1809, and set the manner and tone for much of his future achievement.Wise, I, 7-8; Randolph, pp. 7-10; Hayward 218; Tinker 507-8 Language: English.

Item Description: London John Murray 1841, 1841. First edition with the illustrations. With 61 very fine engravings on steel and one fold-out map all by W. Finden.

A very fine and beautiful copy in a luxurious, very bright and clean. Some very light, quite unobtrusive and only occasional foxing. A SUPERB AND EXTREMELY APPEALING COPY of Lord Byron’s classic poetic work. The poet began writing ‘Childe Harold’ in Albania in 1809 and the first two cantos were issued in 1812. Cantos three and four appeared in 1816 and 1818 respectively. Upon its initial publication in 1812, Byron became instantly famous. "The effect wa s.electric, his fame.seemed to spring, like the palace of a fairy king, in a night."-Moore. A fifth edition was issued later in the same year. "Just turned twenty-four he found himself famous, a great poet, a rising statesman. Society, which in spite of his rank had neglected him, was now at his feet." -EB This volume, profusely illustrated by one of the best known steel-engravers in London, is a visual treat. Through the viewing of the illustrations, the reader is able to travel through Albania, Spain, Porugal, Greece, Belgium, Switzerland, and Italy enjoying through the lyrical voice of the poet and also through the evocative illustrations.

Item Description: John Murray, London, 1817. Hardcover. Extraordinarily Fine Set in Period Morocco of the 1817 Collected Works of Byron. 171 x 108 mm (6 3/4 x 4 1/4"). Five volumes. First Collected Edition in five volumes (see below). VERY ATTRACTIVE CONTEMPORARY DARK BLUE STRAIGHT-GRAIN MOROCCO, DECORATED IN GILT AND BLIND, covers with thick and thin gilt rule border, blind-tooled palmette frame and large blindstamped arabesque centerpiece, raised bands, spine panels with gilt lyre on top of crossed trumpets, gilt titling and turn-ins, all edges gilt. With 11 engraved plates illustrating scenes from the poems. Ashley Library IX, 46. A hint of foxing to engraved material, otherwise only trivial imperfections--AN ATTRACTIVELY BOUND SET IN ESPECIALLY FINE CONDITION, the bindings unusually lustrous, and the text showing almost no signs of use. This is a finely bound and apparently unread first collected edition of Byron's works, published just ten years after his first volume of poetry was printed. It contains the first two cantos of "Childe Harold's Pilgrimage" (completed in 1818), and includes what DNB calls "the sequence of remarkable narratives that began with 'The Giaour' and 'The Bride of Abydos' (1813) and culminated with 'Parisina' and 'The Siege of Corinth' (1815). These were the works that defined and perfected the Byronic hero, whose initial incarnation was Childe Harold. Brooding throughout nineteenth-century European literature, the Byronic figure-usually an aristocrat-embodied a culturally alienated anti-hero, bearing within a dark secret that seemed as threatening to others as to himself." In addition to the works mentioned above, we find here "The Corsair," "Lara," "Ode to Napoelon Bonaparte," "Hebrew Melodies," and 46 shorter verses. First Collected Edition in five volumes (see below). Bookseller Inventory # ST12339
