Infamous Lord Byron was a British Romantic poet and satirist, known for his mannerisms and particular character. He was made famous by his long autobiographical poem Childe Harold's Pilgrimage, 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.

Evidence of the removal of a sticker to the verso front free endpaper. Internally, firmly bound. Light spotting to the odd leaf, and odd offsetting to the occasional leaf, otherwise the pages appear generally clean throughout. Illustrated with a frontispiece portrait of Byron.
