Imitations and translations from the ancient and modern classics, together with original poems never before published.
London: printed for Longman, 1809 - 8vo, xv,[1],255,[1]p. Lacking the half-title. Contemporary polished calf, spine gilt, joints slightly rubbed. A very good copy. First edition. Ashley Library, IX, p. 38; Marchand, Byron's letters and journals, vols. III and IV. Hobhouse's collection is notable for the inclusion of nine poems by Byron which appear here for the first time; as such, these form only the second published collection of Byron's verse. A very attractive copy, with the contemporary bookplate of William Clark. This is Dr. William Clark (1788-1869), anatomist, and Trinity College friend of Byron and Hobhouse. In 1813, Clark agreed to accompany Byron on his projected journey to the East; there was considerable correspondence between them during the summer when the journey seemed imminent, but it was eventually abandoned. In April 1814, when Clark was bound for Paris, Byron wrote: "I only regret that circumstances will not permit me to join you there immediately. You will find Hobhouse at Paris, & your sword & trunk here in your way." [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]
