Finden's Illustrations to the Life and Works of Lord Byron. With Original and Selected Information on the Subjects of the Engravings

London, John Murray, 1833, 1833 and 1834.

Quarto, three volumes, unpaginated, but approximately 120 pages and an additional engraved title page per volume plus 157 full-page plates (after works by Westall, Stansfield, Harding, Turner and others).

Early half morocco and marbled boards, with the spine gilt-decorated in compartments; all edges marbled, with marbled endpapers; covers a little rubbed; marbled paper rubbed off some of the bottom edges of the boards; top edges a little dusty; the 'Belem Castle' plate in the first volume foxed and offset, with minimal light scattered foxing and offsetting elsewhere; later ownership name on an early blank in each volume; binding starting to crack in the centre of the first volume, but still firm; overall an excellent set.

An 'Advertisement' printed at the beginning of the first volume states 'It has been thought desirable, in making up the first Eight Numbers of these Landscape and Portrait Illustrations of Lord Byron into a Volume, to arrange them in a manner less desultory than was the unavoidable order of their publication, and to accompany the Plates with accounts of the subjects of the Engravings'. A note printed at the end of the plate list states that 'The following Vignettes, which were published by Mr Murray in his complete edition, in 12mo ... have been added to the 4to edition of these Illustrations'. There are 34 additional plates.
