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 in fine ruled margins. John Murray had a particular interest in Byron and is largely responsible for publishing and promoting the author, as this fine one volume collection attests. If not for Murray s efforts, it may have taken Byron works years, if ever, to reach the same height of popularity and fame.
