Presumed first edition but note that this edition lacking the frontispiece portrait of Lord Byron featured in the so-called "standard edition." Complete in two volumes. NOT ex-library. No remainder marks. Approximately 8.75 x 6.5 inches. Printed by Strangeways and Sons. Bound [or rebound] in gilt tooled three-quarter medium brown morocco, and with handsome linen-like Kelly green buckram boards. Hubbed spines. Bindery not noted but bound in the style of Sangorski and Sutcliffe. Bindings virtually unsoiled and immensely attractive and the polished morocco with a lovely hand. With scarcely any trace of shelf pull. T.E.G. With charming marbled paper pastedowns and FEPs. With viii and 376 numbered pages in Vol. I and with viii and 370 numbered pages in Vol. II. No inscriptions, signatures, labels, bookplate, underlining, highlighting, or other marks observed. A hint of age toning to all pages of both volumes, quite minor. Else a remarkably clean set of two volumes and a handsome addition to any library shelf on Lord Byron and his times. A Very Good Plus to Near Fine copy.
