BYRON, Lord The Poetical Works. London: Henry Frowde, 1912.

8vo., bound by Riviere and Son in full tree calf with decorative border gilt to both covers; spine fully gilt with contrasting red leather label to spine and five raised bands; all edges gilt; gilt turn-ins and marbled endpapers; with frontispiece portrait in photogravure of the poet on heavier stock under tissue-guard; pp. [vii], vi-x, 924, [ii]; cracked and expertly reinforced along outer hinge of upper board; slight chip to the red leather label; a few small patches of rubbing to the spine and a couple of light spots to endpapers; previous ownership inscription to the ffep; else a bright and fresh example.
Byron's complete poetical works, in a fine Riviere binding, printed in double column with ruled margins. John Murray had a particular interest in Byron and is largely responsible for publishing and promoting the author. If not for Murray's efforts, it may have taken Byron years, if ever, to reach the same height of popularity and fame.
