Mazeppa
London: John Murray, 1819. First Edition. 1st edition, 2nd issue with the imprint of the printer on the verso of page 71 (not page 70). Original brown wrappers, uncut, rebacked, very good. Mazeppa is a fine poem but it is that which is attached at the end that rings most sharply today. It is titled "A Fragment" and truthfully so, but what a fragment. It is the opening chapter of Byron's contribution to the famed ghost story entertainment that produced Mary Shelley's Frankenstein and John Polidori's The Vampyre.
