THE

BEAUTIES

OF

BYRON.

To the few persons who have not read Lord Byron's poems, but who, after perusing these specimens, will undoubtedly wish to read the whole of them, we beg leave to say, that the only correct editions are published by Mr. Murray, of Albemarle Street, and Messrs. J.& H. L. Hunt of Tavistock Street. The first eight volumes are to be had from the former publisher ; the last two volumes from the latter. All other editions are piracies, and infliet even more injury on the sense and poetry of the noble bard, than they do on the property of the proprietors.

THE VISION OF ALP THE RENEGADE.
He sate him down at a pillar's base,
And passed his hand athwart his face;
Like one in dreary musing mood,
Declining was his attitude;
His head was drooping on his breast,
Fever'd, throbbing, and opprest;
And o'er his brow, so downward bent,
Oft his beating fingers went,
Hurriedly, as you may see
Your own run o'er the ivory key,
Ere the measured tone is taken
