Two Thomas Medwin Poet Biographies. Thomas Medwin was a cousin as well as a close friend of Percy Bysshe Shelley. He corresponded frequently with Shelley and his father, Medwin's uncle, Sir Timothy Shelley. Thomas Medwin: The Life of Percy Bysshe Shelley (London: Thomas Cautley Newby, 1847), two volumes, Volume I: 384 pages, Volume II: 368 pages, banded half-leather with marbled boards and endpapers, top edge gilt, 8vo (5" x 8"), rebound. Volume I has facsimile letter bound in front of the title page. Very good condition, with light rubbing to the bottom edge and upper corners. Binding is tight, and the textblock is clean on both volumes.

    Thomas Medwin: Conversations of Lord Byron: Noted During a Residence with His Lordship at Pisa in the Years 1821 and 1822 (London: Henry Colburn, 1824), second edition, 542 pages followed by 2 pages of advertising, half-leather with marbled boards, 8vo (5.5" x 8.5"). Facsimile of a letter by Byron bound in front of title page. Interestingly, almost every page has an annotated Post-it attached to it by Dr. Bennett. The exterior binding is in poor condition, with much of the marbled paper and corner leather missing, upper half of leather on the spine pulled away, and light foxing. Textblock in very good condition. From the Betty Bennett Collection.
