FITZ GREEN HALLECK, ESQ.
The Poetical Works of Lord Byron have been published in a variety of forms—but at no time, or in any country, has a uniform edition of his Prose and Poetical Works been attempted before the present. The edition now publishing in London, by Murray, contains so much of Byron's Prose writing as is included in the Life by Moore.-In the American edition there is a great number of the Letters of Byron not in the English copy, including Letters to his mother. There is also in this edition a large collection of Poems not in any previons American one ; many blanks are filled up, and explanatory notes added, which will be found of essential service to the reader. The present, therefore, is emphatically the first complete edition of the Poetical and Prose Works of Lord Byron.
The Head of Byron, engraved for this edition, is from a painting by an American artist, and was considered by Byron and his friends as the best ever taken.
