JOHN CHILDS AND SON, PRINTERS.

NOTICE TO THE PEARL EDITION

OF

LORD BYRON'S

BYRON'S WORKS.

ALTHOUGH various Editions are circulated purporting to be 'Byron's Works,' none are complete except those bearing the imprint of the publisher of this Edition, who retains the copyright of pieces which no one else has the right to reprint. In addition to this, he has taken the pains to collate carefully the text by the original MSS, in Lord Byron's writing, which are in his possession, and has thus been able to discover and expunge numerous errors from which no other Edition is free.

He ventures, therefore, to invite comparison between this and any recent Edition, on the score of accuracy, completeness, and price.

It is necessary to caution the public against imperfect Editions exposed for sale with the titles, ‘Byron's Poetical Works,' 'Byron's Poems,' "The Works of Lord Byron,' which not only do not contain the entire works, but often give very imperfect versions of the fragments comprised in them.
