* BYRON, George Gordon Noel, Lord (1788-1824). Werner, a Tragedy. London: John Murray, 1823.
8vo (227 x 141 mm). Half-title, 7 pp. publisher's advertisements at end. ORIGINAL WRAPPERS UNCUT (some light soiling, light chipping with minor losses to spine); cloth folding case.
FIRST EDITION, FIRST ISSUE. Werner was originally to include Heaven and Earth, a Drama, as stated in the publisher's advertisements, thus the printer omitted "the end" from the last leaf (as here). The two works were published separately, and it was added to the last leaf in the second edition. Wise II, p. 43.
Property from the Estate of Steve and Peggy Fossett, Carmel, California
