Item Description: Pisa, 19 January 1822, 1822. One page, octavo (200 × 125 mm), written on one side only. Small circular blindstamp of Dobbs & Co, London, at foot below the text. Housed in a black quarter morocco slipcase with chemise by the Chelsea Bindery. Byron writes to thank his old friend for an unusual gift: "A Thousand and one thanks for the boar - which has arrived in high order - and entire. But I wish you were here to partake of your magnifique present. When do you return?" and continuing to his valediction "with a haste not to keep your man waiting". Byron had moved to Pisa at the end of October 1821 to join the Shelleys and Teresa Guiccioli, and Hay joined their Pisan circle (including, besides Byron and Shelley, Edward and Jane Williams and Leigh Hunt and his family) the following January. Hay, a Scot from Kelso, Roxburghshire, had known Byron as early as 1809 and perhaps earlier. He was related, though distantly, to Byron's youthful love Mary Duff and, through a connection with the Gordons, even more distantly to Byron himself. They enjoyed a bluff masculine relationship, characterized in part by their 1809 wager, Byron betting Hay fifty guineas to one that he would never get married, a bet he had to pay out six years later. By 1812 Hay was a blood in London society, acquainted with Martin Hawke (son of Baron Hawke of Towton), and Lords Powerscourt and Blessington, all known to Byron, when Thomas Medwin was introduced into their circle, and later to Byron. The present letter, acknowledging a gift of spoils from the hunt, is highly characteristic of their relationship during Hay's stay in Pisa. Hay played a central role in the most violent episode of Byron's Pisan sojourn, when on 24 March the male friends were riding out for their customary afternoon's pistol shooting. A local dragoon, Sergeant-Major Stefani Masi of the Tuscan Royal Light Horse, brushed past, startling one of their horses, and started an affray in which Masi slashed Hay across the face with his sabre and knocked Shelley unconscious. Masi was later stabbed with a pitchfork by an unidentified assailant, perhaps one of Byron's servants. The Masi affair was one catalyst in dispersing the Pisan circle. Hay left for England on 3 April, presumably to have his facial wound tended. Two disasters finally broke the circle - first the death of Byron's five-year-old daughter Allegra on 20 April and then the drowning of Shelley, Williams and Charles Vivian on 8 July - and Byron left Pisa for the summer residence Hay had found for him, the Villa Dupuy on a hillside in Montenero, several kilometers south of Leghorn, which however proved unbearably hot.

Item Description: John Murray, London, 1841. Hardcover. Birth of the Byronic Hero, Beautifully Clothed in Morocco and with Exquisite Fore-Edge Vignettes from the Narrative. 235 x 146 mm (9 1/4 x 5 3/4"). 2 p.l. (including the frontispiece), xvi, 320 pp. VERY STRIKING CHESTNUT-BROWN CRUSHED MOROCCO, HANDSOMELY GILT AND INLAID, BY FAZAKERLEY (stamp-signed on turn-in at front), front cover with an elaborate frame of inlaid leaves and flowers in green, orange, and yellow morocco enclosing four lines of large gilt titling (rear cover with a gilt oval containing the same colored morocco inlays around the gilt initials "E. M. W."), wide turn-ins with gilt decoration and inlaid green leaves, cream-colored moiré silk endleaves, EDGES GILT AND ELABORATELY GAUFFERED, THE FORE EDGE WITH THREE FINE VIGNETTES SHOWING SCENES FROM THE POEM. With 62 engravings after William Finden, including a frontispiece, an added engraved title page, a folding map (featuring a frame of scenic roundels) showing the course of Harold's travels, and 59 engraved vignettes used as headpieces and tailpieces. Very faint browning at the edges of leaves because of slightly inferior paper stock, occasional pale mottled foxing, otherwise very fine, THE SUPERB BINDING UNWORN AND UNUSUALLY BRIGHT AND CLEAN. This is a glorious binding with an exquisitely painted fore edge, adorning Byron's lengthy narrative poem recounting the travels of a young man in search of enlightenment. In the course of the work's four parts, the title character journeys through the Iberian penninsula, the Baltics, Albania, Greece, Belgium, Italy, and elsewhere, and, as a result, the Byronic hero--struggling with morality, cynicism, and a distrust of authority--is born. When the first two cantos of Byron's "Childe Harold" were published in 1812, the poet became an overnight sensation. As Day observes, "No previous poem in English literature enjoyed such immediate triumph." While the first part of the poem is a fine example of what Day terms Byron's "exuberant Romanticism," the third and fourth cantos, published in 1816 and 1818, respectively, demonstrate the "Romantic pessimism" or "Weltschmerz" ("World Grief"), 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." Binder Thomas Fazakerley is especially well known for delicate paintings on glittering gold fore edges, visible, not when the volume is fanned open, but rather when it is closed--and that is certainly a feature notably on display here. The vignettes are set off by a striking physical context: the fancifully designed and artfully crafted morocco is a visual delight, and the unpainted portions of the golden book block edges are memorable, as the gauffered embellishments in high relief represent sculpting of this sort at least as pronounced as we have ever seen. The three scenic fore-edge vignettes are painted versions of locales in the text. They are made with deft strokes of an extremely fine brush that have created landscapes with surprising detail in pleasing colors that do not disappoint even under magnification. The center (and by far the largest) one shows Chillon in an expansive and exhilarating view with pleasure-seeking figures in the foreground and imposing Alpine peaks on the other side of Lake Geneva; the bottom depicts a tranquil scene on the banks of Lake Trasimeno near Perugia; the top scene, showing a glorious sunset, appears to be Rome, with St. Peter's Cathedral in the middle ground. No other binder is associated with this kind of unusually diverting decorative feature. While not rare beyond description, the type of volume offered here is uncommonly seen for sale: from 1975 to 2009, for example, ABPC lists just three bindings with multiple fore-edge vignettes at auction.

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: Along with William Wordsworth, John Keats, and Samuel Taylor Coleridge,Lord Byron was among the great romantic poets of an era he helped define.And his interest in poetry began at a young age. When he was not at Harrow,a prep school in northwest London, he lived with his mother. It washere that he met Elizabeth Pigot, with whom he would have a lifelong andformative relationship. This relationship would launch his literary enterprises.Pigot encouraged ByronÕs poetic talents, convincing him to publish a bookof poetry, Fugitive Pieces, which contained poems written when the poetwas only 14. She helped him collect the material and transcribed it. However,this book was recalled before distribution and promptly burned overfears that its verses would prompt scandal.This stopped neither Pigot nor Byron, who worked with Pigot to put out hisfirst public set of works, Hours of Idleness, which contained more recentcompositions. This was ByronÕs introduction to the public and launcheda career which was as volatile and important as it was short. One of theworks Byron wrote for Hours of Idleness was ÒThe Episode of Ninus andEuryalus,Ó which was, as he wrote, a Òparaphrase of the Aeneid.Ó This demonstratedhis love of Virgil at a time when he was just 19 years old.Manuscript signed, a portion of his original working draft of this, his earliestformally published work, two lines of corrected and revised verse fromÒThe Episode of Ninus and Euryalus,Ó printed in Hours of Idleness in 1807.ÒSpare, spare Ye Chiefs! from him your rage remove, His fault was friendship, allhis crime was love.Ó This manuscript shows the line in an earlier draft form,with important revisions by the young poet. He has crossed out, ÒCan thisdisplease? ah no! if our prayer were one.Ó This shows the evolution fromdraft to final.Pigot had helped Byron compile his early manuscripts and retained them afterhe died. In 1828 she was discovered by the first of ByronÕs biographers,Thomas Moore, and was able to supply him with a great deal of material.Pigot started a correspondence with John Murray who was involved withByronÕs publishings and his biography. It was Moore and the publisher JohnMurray who burnt ByronÕs papers to prevent further scandal.But not all of PigotÕs material was lost or destroyed. Pigot retained some ofByronÕs original manuscript works from this very period. This manuscriptpiece comes with a note from Pigot which reads, ÒI affirm this to be Lord ByronÕswriting, in the year 1807, EB Pigot.ÓThis was sent to an admirer who wrote her asking for a sample of ByronÕshandwriting. Poetical manuscripts from this early in ByronÕs career are uncommon.The last such piece with provenance from Pigot sold in 1993. Bookseller Inventory # 9700

Item Description: Printed by T. Davison, For John Murray (except as indicated), London, 1813. Hardcover. With an Especially Fine Painting and 11 Works,Including Five Firsts, by Byron. 216 x 140 mm (8 1/2 x 5 1/2"). 11 separately published works bound in one volume. FIRST EDITIONS of "Corinth," "Chillon," "Poems," "Manfred" (second issue), and "Mazeppa." Third Editions of "Giaour," "Tasso,&quo. ATTRACTIVE BLACK STRAIGHT-GRAIN MOROCCO, rebacked with very great skill in the style of the period, covers framed with simple gilt rules, decorated raised bands flanked by gilt rules, spine panels with blindstamped foliate cornerpieces and gilt hexagonal centerpiece, turn-ins with decorative gilt roll and unusual delicate floral and foliate gilt border on purple silk doublures and free endleaves, all edges gilt. In a (slightly worn) fleece-lined cloth slipcase. WITH A VERY FINE FORE-EDGE PAINTING OF THE CASTLE OF CHILLON. Four engraved plates. Verso of front endpaper with book label of "HNF" (Helmut N. Friedlaender). First Editions Club Byron Bibliography, 19a, 16, 14, 21b, 25. A hint of rubbing to leather, leaves adjacent to plates a little offset, a dozen leaves a bit foxed or soiled, light uniform browning in one publication and to edges of two others, but A VERY ATTRACTIVE COPY, the binding quite lustrous and with no significant wear, the painting especially well preserved, and the various texts mostly quite clean, fresh, and bright. Very possibly a piece of work that is contemporaneous with the binding here, the fore-edge painting on this volume is among the finest we have offered for sale. Partly because the thickness of the book has put at the artist's disposal an ample amount of space, there is considerable precisely realized detail almost everywhere. The Castle dominating the background provides an example, as one can glimpse a subtle reflection of the structure in the lake it fronts as well as see roof tiles on the various castle towers. Eight persons are walking along the wooded pier that occupies the right third of the scene, and at least five of these are individuated (a servant woman and her son, a gentleman in pantaloons, and an aristocratic couple smartly dressed in expensive clothes, including straw hats). In addition, the two commercial vessels in the painting are depicted with enough specificity that one can determine something significant about their occupants and the activities they are involved in. Over the whole scene the colors are rich, and the shading is extraordinarily sophisticated. Although this item is of considerable interest as a finely executed fore-edge painting, it also comprises a substantial collection of first and early editions of works by Byron, ranging from youthful pieces like "The Giaour," exotic and wildly romantic, to the much more lighthearted "Beppo," written during Byron's happier years in Venice. "Poems on Domestic Circumstances," which appears midway through our volume, alludes obscurely to the dark and mysterious scandals that caused his divorce and his final departure from England. All of the Byron items bound in this volume are textually complete. Our copies of "Corinth," "Chillon," "Manfred," "Mazeppa, " and "Poems" are identical with the described first printings in the First Editions Club Byron Bibliography, with the exceptions that all are bound without the half title, and "Chillon," "Manfred," and "Mazeppa" lack the final leaf or two of ads. In addition, the title page for "Manfred" includes the quotation (probably added early in the press run) that comprises a second issue point, and our final leaf of "Poems" has the Notes transferred to what is supposed to be a blank verso, and an unlisted dedicatory verse on the recto. FIRST EDITIONS of "Corinth," "Chillon," "Poems," "Manfred" (second issue), and "Mazeppa." Third Editions of "Giaour," "Tasso,&quo. Bookseller Inventory # ST11700

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.

Item Description: John Murrary, London, 1830. First Edition. Two volumes extended into four, extra-illustrated with the addition of 257 portraits and views, with added title pages hand-printed in red and black. The illustrations include black and white engravings and etchings, original drawings, a few hand-colored along with some original art pieces of which two are in color, all incised within the leaves. A very special production of R.B. Adam and among the finest of his privately extra-illustrated versions which involved his assiduously searching for the appropriate engravings relating to Byron and his contemporaries. The present work was originally in two volumes but was extended to four quarto volumes to accommodate all the illustrations. Also noted in the 1926 Anderson's auction catalog of Adam's books is listed a copy of Lord Byron and Some of His Contemporaries. by Leigh Hunt, 1828, extra-illustrated, one volume extended to two quarto volumes with special title pages printed for the set as he did with the present work. The present item (as well as Leigh Hunt's Byron) was noted in Daniel Tredwell's A monograph on Privately Illustrated Books, A Plea for Bibliomania, first published in 1881, then again in the 1902 edition of "The Book Lover". A. Edward Newton said only R.B. Adam had a deeper collection than his. Newton wrote in "This Book Collecting Game": [In] 1926 my great friend and fellow Johnsonian, Mr. R.B. Adam of Buffalo had a sale at the Anderson Galleries in New York of a portion of his library. The pre-auction dinner party hosted by Newton for R.B. Adam included A.S.W. Rosenbach, Jerome Kern, Carl Pforzheimer, Seymour de Ricci and other notables. Handsomely bound by Cedric Chivers, Bath (signed binding) in full red morocco decoratively stamped in gilt and black framing the beautiful circular color vellucent coat-of-arms of Lord Byron, above is a green morocco inset stamped in gilt with a "B" with a crown above, raised bands with compartments lettered and stamped in gilt, gilt ruled morocco turn ins, marbled endpapers, all edges gilt, all others uncut, wide margined and with tissue guards, joints rubbed.

Item Description: Porter and Coates Philadelphia, 1868. Hardcover. Book Condition: Fine. No Jacket. 1st Edition. Without question, one of the most beautiful and interesting books you will ever own. This book is absolutely gorgeous with its ornately decorated, embossed and gold gilded front cover and with all three page edges brightly shimmering with their gold gilding. The spine of this massive book is also elaborately decorated with lovely embossed roses of red and gold. Though printed sometime in the 1800's the spine is as secure and as tight as the day it was created. The pages, all 984 of them, are crisp, clean and bright. This book has been protected and cared for beyond what most would even imagine. Truly impressive and quite heavy and measuring 7" by 10" vertical and a stout 2-1/2" thick. Never ever, has it been exposed to any type of smoke whatsoever. I feel it is safe to say that, first of all, I have searched worldwide, and to date, am yet unable to find a second book exactly like this one, and if one even exists, it would be highly unlikely that it would mirror the glorious condition of this rare book.

Item Description: London: Printed for John Murray, Albemarle Street, 1815. Soft cover. Book Condition: Fine. Original plain drab paper wrappers; front cover detached, back cover stained and nearly detached, spine panel missing. Tail edge stained, edges slightly browned, otherwise clean. FIRST EDITION, FIRST ISSUE, with the advertisement for Rogers's "Jacqueline" and the shorter, "in the press" description of Campbell's "Selected Beauties of English Poetry." Inserted at the back of the volume are the half-titles and titles enabling Byron's "pamphlet-poems" to be bound in two volumes. This book contains a number of excellent romantic love songs including the first printing of "She Walks in Beauty," one of Byron's greatest short poems. She walks in beauty, like the night Of cloudless climes and starry skies; And all that 's best of dark and bright Meet in her aspect and her eyes. . . 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: 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: John Murray, London, 1817. Hardcover. Extraordinarily Fine Set in Period MoroccoOf 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
