Mazeppa, A Poem; Ode (To Venice); A Fragment

by Lord Byron

Condition: Very Good

London: John Murray, 1819. 1st Edition . Very Good. 5.25 x 8.25 inches (13.5 x 21.5 cm). Later red buckram binding with fading to spine and light marking to boards. Book contains volume V of the Works of Lord Byron (1824) followed by the first edition of Mazeppa (1819). This second title also includes Byron's Ode to Venice and A Fragment of a Novel. This final piece is the first printing of his unfinished vampire horror story. Written the same night as Mary Shelley's Frankenstein and Polidori's Vampyre (which was inspired by this fragment) during their ghost story writing contest. This example is lacking the final leaf of ads that contains the imprint, we are therefore unable to determine if this is the first or second state. Light foxing to text. Overall condition is Very Good. Size: 5.25 x 8.25 inches (13.5 x 21.5 cm). Hardback
