This Volume contains the six concluding Cantos of Don Juan, written at Genoa in 1823, and first published in 1824;— an Appendix, which supplies some lacunæ in the preceding Volumes, and includes several Minor Pieces in verse, of various dates, some of them not before printed, and recovered too late to be inserted in the chronological order ;-and, lastly, a copious Index to the whole of this Collection.
Perhaps the Reader will look in vain for any Apology for Lord Byron, more impressive than that which is presented by the brief summary of a life of thirty-six years, in one article of that Index.
London, May 15. 1833.
