What Our Customers Say...
Leather Binding, Rebound
John Murray's edition of the collected works works of Romantic English poet Lord Byron in four pocket sized volumes. In uniform morocco bindings complete with half titles.
Byron was an infamous figure of Romanticism known for his mannerisms and particular character. He was made famous in his time by his long autobiographical poem Childe Harold's Pilgrimage and his many love affairs, and is better known today for the satiric realism of Don Juan. His poetry is characterised by the use of blank verse, allusive imagery, heroic couplets, and complex structure.
