Lord Byron and His Times – Book List

At First Editions all books are hardback with original dust-jackets unless otherwise stated.

Everyone should read the wonderful poetry of Lord Byron and at First Editions you will find the most comprehensive collection of Byron’s Works.

To compliment his enormous ouvre we also stock a fine selection of Byron biography and many volumes on his life and times which include his pioneering and adventurous travels through Greece and Albania.

No Byron collection is complete without works by his great friend and mentor, the Bard of Erin, Thomas Moore. Moore’s works are entertaining reading in their own right and at First Editions you will find volumes of poetry, biography and novels interspersed with copies of his famous Melodies, still heard and sung to this day across the spectrum.
