Dealer Notes
Coleridge Childe Harold p 186; The Giaour p 237; The Prisoner of Chillon p 285; The Corsair p 203; Lara p 297; Hebrew Melodies p 244; English Bards & Scotch Reviewers p 232; Manfred p 267; & Heaven & Earth p. 241. The British Library would appear not to have The Prisoner of Chillon; Parisina; The Island; Miscellaneous Poems; Cain; Heaven and Earth: & The Deformed Transformed. The Elkin Mathews 1930 Catalogue of Byron & Byroniana only has Sardanapalus and Kohler's 1980 Byron Catalogue has none of them. It would appear that Parisina, The Island, Miscellaneous Poems, Cain, & The Deformed Transformed are quiet rare, while the remaining pirate editions are scarce. This is not a complete set of Dugdale Byron printings, William St Clair in The Reading Nation in the Romantic Period shows one of Dugdales Advertisments for 1824 and that lists The Giaour, Hebrew Melodies, Don Juan, the 14 cantos, The Two Visions of Judgement, The Bride of Abydos, Parisina, Siege of Corinth, & Corsair.
Author BYRON, George Gordon Noel, Lord.
Date 1825 - 1826.
