The Gallery of Byron Beauties: Ideal Pictures of the Principal Female Characters in Lord Byron's Poems, 1867. Beautiful early Victorian book of Byron's poems, each accompanied by an illustration of one of the female characters in the poem. Mostly uses the poems as an excuse for a book of images of beautiful girls - clearly the practice has been around for awhile.
186 pgs, 10.5" H x 7.5" W x 1.5" D. Good condition - binding and cover have beautiful gilt decoration. Foxing and slight water mark on pages.
