In the preparation of the present edition of the works of Lord Byron, the publishers have spared no expense or delay in making it ENTIRELY COMPLETE. In its progress through the press, it has undergone the careful supervision of a distinguished literary gentleman; and its proprietors feel that they can claim for this e lition what no other publisher can in this country, - that it contains, UNABRIDGED line for line, and word for word, the COMPLETE WORKS of Lord Byron, and, in this respect, the only one ever issued from the American press.
