Notes, MURRAY'S BEAUTIFUL ILLUSTRATED EDITION, LARGE AND THICK PAPER, with 62 exquisite vignette engravings by Finden, from pictures by Creswick, Warren, and other eminent Painters, royal 8vo, newly bound in straight grained green morocco extra, handsomely gilt back in the style

of Roger Payne, gilt top, UNCUT, BY RIVIERE, £4 10s-1841 BYRON. Don Juan, Cantos 17 to 24, by John Clark (of Bridgewater), in 2 vols., 8vo boards, very rare, £4 4s-Bridgewater,

84 This continuation of Don Juan was privately printed by the author and never published; the volumes have no titles, none having been printed. It is believed that not more than two copies exist. The present has corrections in the autograph of the author, John Clark; the printing is very rude, and in

7 some places have pieces of paper pasted over, on which are reprinted the BYRON. The Wanderings of Childe Harold,

Romance of Real Life, interspersed with Memoirs of the English Wife, The Foreign Mistress, and various other Celebrated Characters, by John Harman Bedford, Lt., K.N., 3 vols, 12mo, newly bound, half calf extra, gilt tops, UNCUT, £3 3s-Sherwood, Jones Co., 1825

Assumed to be a history of Lord Byron's life and wanderings, liaisons, &c., after his separation from his wife, and contains very grap descriptions of the manners and customs of the southern climes, with racy anecdotes of several famous contemporary characters, including Lord Nelson, Lady and

Sir William Hamilton, Bonaparte, and others. BYRON. Glenarvon, a Novel, by Lady Caroline Lamb,


(86 The character of Glenarvon was intended for Lord Byron, who spoke of the work as “a very insincere production." The authorens's passion for him, which was unreturned, was so great that she once attempted to commit suicide,

on being slighted by him at a ball. BYRON. Guiccioli's Recollections of Lord Byron,
