Byron, L. (n.d.). Byron's Poetical Works, Vol. 1. Retrieved from

The text of the present issue of Lord Byron?s Poetical Works is based on that of ?The Works of Lord Byron?, in six volumes, 12mo, which was published by John Murray in 1831. That edition followed the text of the successive issues of plays and poems which appeared in the author?s lifetime, and were subject to his own revision, or that of Gifford and other accredited readers. A more or less thorough collation of the printed volumes with the MSS. which were at Moore?s disposal, yielded a number of variorum readings which have appeared in subsequent editions published by John Murray. Fresh collations of the text of individual poems with the original MSS. have been made from time to time, with the result that the text of the latest edition (one-vol. 8vo, 1891) includes some emendations, and has been supplemented by additional variants. Textual errors of more or less importance, which had crept into the numerous editions which succeeded the seventeen-volume edition of 1832, were in some instances corrected, but in others passed over. For the purposes of the present edition the printed text has been collated with all the MSS. which passed through Moore?s hands, and, also, for the first time, with MSS. of the following plays and poems, viz. ?English Bards, and Scotch Reviewers?; ?Childe Harold?, Canto IV.; ?Don Juan?, Cantos VI.-XVI.; ?Werner?; ?The Deformed Transformed?; ?Lara?; ?Parisina?; ?The Prophecy of Dante?; ?The Vision of Judgment?; ?The Age of Bronze?; ?The Island? The only works of any importance which have been printed directly from the text of the first edition, without reference to the MSS., are the following, which appeared in ?The Liberal? (1822-23), viz.
