Description

    [Lady Byron]. Remarks Occasioned by Mr. Moore's Notices of Lord Byron's Life. London: [privately printed, 1830].

    First edition. 15 pages.

    This 16-page unbound, uncut, unopened sheet has some soiling to the title page and final page. In custom folding box. Very good.

    This pamphlet served to explain Lady Byron's account of the basis for the legal separation between herself and Lord Byron. Thomas Wise, in his A Bibliography of Byron, quotes Lady Byron as she explains the purpose of the piece: "'My wish is to place the copy only in the hands of those who will make a discreet use of it, and prevent the possibility of its insertion in the Newspapers at present. I think I shall not send out more than a dozen at first.'" As there is a noticeable variation between this, the first edition, and the second edition (which runs only 13 pages), Wise speculates that "these dozen or so copies formed the first edition of the pamphlet, and that when the decision was arrived at to extend its circulation to a wider circle the second edition was printed. If this suggestion be correct, the rarity of the first edition is accounted for."

    Wise, 94.
