WITH ORIGINAL AND SELECTED INFORMATION ON THE
SUBJECTS OF THE ENGRAVINGS
MEMBER OF THE ACADEMIES OF FINE ARTS AT FLORENCE AND AT ROME;
It has been thought desirable, in making up the first Eight Numbers of these Landscape and Portrait Illustrations of LORD BYRON into a Volume, to arrange them in a manner less desultory than was the unavoidable order of their publication, and to accompany the Plates with accounts of the subjects of the Engravings, from authors of eminence and from original sources. The First Volume is thus presented to the Public in a complete form; and the succeeding Eight Numbers of the Work will, upon their publication, be adapted in the same way, and form an elegant accession to the drawing-room table and to the library of illustrated works.
