Item Description: Printed by S. Gosnell ? for Sherwood, Neely, and Jones, London, 1813. 27, [1] pp. 4to. First edition. First edition. 27, [1] pp. 4to. This poem was for Byron something of an experiment, which is why he adopted a pseudonym. After a rather lukewarm reception, Byron disowned the poem entirely. A small cache of uncut copies was discovered at some time in the mid-19th century, and most surviving examples, including this one, are from this source. Ashley 1:149-50; First Edition Club/Byron 7a; Hayward 220; Wise I:71-72. Provenance: William Waldorf, Viscount Astor (armorial bookplate) Full red morocco gilt by Riviere, spine gilt-lettered. Joints starting, some rubbing, bottom and fore-edge uncut; title-page lighty soiled, some light foxing. Bookseller Inventory # 305343

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. 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.

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.

Item Description: Cambridge: Cambridge (Cantabrigiae) Academic Press., 1705. LORD BYRON'S copy. First edition edited by Joshua Barnes (a professor of Greek at Cambridge University). Illustrated with 3 copper engraved folding portraits (the author, the editor, and his patron John Chruchill, Duke of Marlborough). 12mo. Bound in full period calf boards ruled in blind, later respine to style. Inscribed by Leigh Hunt to Byron on flyleaf with inscription in latin regarding Byron's imminent journey to Italy, dated beginning of April 1816, with 7pp of Leigh Hunt's translations of selected odes in holograph. Housed in a full leather custom-made slip-case. The text is a study of the life and work of the Greek lyric poet Anacreon (c.582-c.485BC) and includes the drinking songs and hymns for which he was renowned. Minor edgewear, scuffing. Very good indeed, repair to front inner hinge. Internally clean, inscriptions and notes to prelims and final leaf. In 1813, as editor of The Examiner newspaper, poet and critic Leigh Hunt (1784-1859) served a two-year prison sentence for a (substantially factual) published attack on The Prince Regent; subsequent outcry and sympathy mean Hunt was afforded an opulent and luxurious cell with frequent visitors including his friend the flamboyant romantic Lord Byron. Both shared an interest in journals and quarterlies although efforts to launch a joint project were not fruitful and their friendship suffered. Later, an impoverished Hunt became increasingly dependent on Byron, who did not relish the idea of supporting the troublesome essayist; Hunt in return published 'Lord Byron and some of his Contemporaries' (1825) which questioned the idealized portraits of Byron.

Item Description: Printed for John Murray 1814-18, London, 1814. 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" (1814), and "The Corsair & Poems" (1815) in volume I; "Lara" (1814), "Hebrew Melodies" (1815), "The Seige of Corinth & Par.

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: 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. PHOTOS AVAILABLE UPON REQUEST. Bookseller Inventory # 310

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. Thick 8vo, luxuriously bound by Tout in dark turquoise-blue morocco, the covers and spine with elaborate all over gilt arabesque decorations and corner tooling, the spine with raised bands separating the compartments, lettered and richly gilt designs, edges with double gilt fillet rules, elaborate gilt turnovers, a.e.g. xvi, 311. 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. 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.

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
