PREFACE.


Moore, in his Life of Byron, numbers and prints 561 letters; Halleck, in the American edition of Byron's Works, prints 635. In this edition 1198 letters are collected.

A chronological list of the 1198 letters, together with a statement of the authorities for the text, will be found on pages 459-492 of this volume.

I desire to express my gratitude to the Rev. Canon Evans and to Mr. G. H. Holden, for the care and labour which they have given to the correction of the proof-sheets of all the volumes. To Mr. Richard Edgcumbe I am indebted for some interesting information.

The Index is the work of Mr. C. Eastlake Smith.

R. E. PROTHERO.
