John Murray, London 1839 - The Poetical Works of Lord Byron. Octavo, 9 volumes. Bound in three quarters blue morocco over cloth, gilt titles and tooling to the spine, raised bands, marbled endpapers top edge gilt, gilt double ruled to the front and rear panels. Illistrated with 159 plates. In near fine condition. An attractive set. "Byron is to a far greater degree than the other romanticists the poet of humankind. He conveys with tremendous power the majesty and desolation of history, the vanity of pomp and pride, the transitoriness of fame. And he is the poet of contemporary society, keen to discern the false and the corrupt, courageous in denunciation yet with pity for the young and innocent. As a poet he mirrored brilliantly and without distortion an absorbingly interesting world" (Baugh, 1229). [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]
