BY

LORD BYRON.

" Like an archangel ex led for dark crimes,

His spirit w.lk'd the arth in rcorn and gloom.
And w'ere it mot, it-note like the simoon,
Deally thin h brantiful. Yet there were times
Wh- his great .. ul shone out upon the world
In all the prisoul glory of her light.
His Bons were theu rrmeubrances of Heaven,
Dash'l wiha scoffing spirit at that Earth
In which he see'd cunstrin'd to live, Yet even
In his ar 8t moking inoments you cold trace
The fire of genius, and, un ouxcious, bow
To the right halu wh ch it cast around hiin."- Axos.

INSTEAD of an excuse, the Publishers have to offer a congratula tion to the Public upon being enabled, by the lapse of copyrights, to add most of the Poetical Works of Byron to their cheap, but elegant series of our most esteemed poets. This volume contains all Lord Byron's Poems of which the copyright is free, with the exception of Don Juan, from which extraordinary work, as it is their wish that their books should be welcomed in every family circle, they have only presented carefully-selected beautiful passages, with which English readers are so well acquainted, tist they would naturally look for them.
