This Volume consists of four pieces, written,
two of them at Ravenna in 1821, the others at
Pisa in 1822.

When this Edition was first announced,
nothing more was designed than an exact
reprint of Mr. Moore's Notices, and Lord
Byron's Works in prose and verse, as they had
previously been given to the public; and the
printer calculated that the whole might be
comprised in fourteen volumes.

While, however, the Notices of Lord Byron's
Life were for the second time passing through
the
press,

it was suggested to the Publisher,
that the time was come when the Public had a
right to look for such notes and illustrations to
Lord Byron's text, as are usually appended to
the
pages

of a deceased author of established
and permanent popularity. This suggestion was
acted upon; and its adoption has, apparently,
given general satisfaction. These additions
will extend the Work to seventeen volumes

;
the last of which will include a very copious
and careful Index to the whole collection.

London, December 12, 1832.
