The Life of Byron (By Thomas Moore in 6 volumes) bound uniformly with The Poetical Works of Lord Byron (in 10 volumes).
Boston: Little, Brown and Company, 1851. 16 volume set, 6 1/2 inches tall. A superb full calf with gilt raised bands, twin labels and gilt tooling to the panels. Engraved frontispieces and title pages to each volume. With the bookplate of T. I. Coolidge and signature of William A. Coolidge. This appears to be the text and plates from the John Murray 17 volume London edition, published in the United States nearly 20 years later, in a total of 16 slightly thicker volumes. A scarce and fine set of these great and hugely influential works.
