A. A note on the abortive duel between Jeffrey and Moore is dated November 4, 1811.

B. A note on the fly-leaf in the handwriting of James Boswell, jun.—

"This copy purports on the title-page to be the fourth edition, but is in truth the fifth. Having pointed out to Murray, the bookseller, a variation between the copy of the fifth edition and this, he borrowed it from me, that he might show it to Lord Byron to have the circumstance explained; that his lordship told him he had printed the fifth edition, but, before its publication, having repented of the work altogether, he determined to destroy the whole impression. But the printer, as he observed, must have retained at least this one copy, and, by putting a false title-page, had sold it as the fourth edition," etc.—Notes and Queries, 1887, Series V. vol. vii. pp. 203, 204.

Mr. Murray's copy of the Fifth Edition contains, on the fly-leaves at the beginning of the volume, MS. versions of (1) The Curse of Minerva, pp. ị-[xi.]; (2) The Answer to Fitzgerald's Epigram, written at the "Alfred," on English Bards, etc., p. [xv.]; and on p. xvi. the following MS. Title-page:—

English Bards/ and Scotch Reviewers; a/ Satire/ By Lord Byron./ I had rather be a kitten, and cry, mew!/ Than one of these same metre ballad-mongers./ Shakspere./ Such shameless Bards we have; and yet 'tis true,/ There are as mad, abandon'd critics too./ Pope./ Fifth Edition,/ Unpublished; with considerable additions./ London:/ Printed for James Cawthorne,/ Cockspur Street./ 1812./

Note (1).—A facsimile of the Title-page (2) faces p. xii. of vol. i. of the Poetical Works, 1898. It has been alleged that large-paper copies of this edition were issued from the Newark press. It is certain that large copies (a copy in the British Museum, cut for binding, measures 220 X 122), printed on paper bearing a water-mark dated 1806, were thrown upon the market at an early period, but it has not been ascertained at what date or in what place they were printed. They are undoubtedly deliberate forgeries. They purport, even in respect of errata, to be identical with the genuine issue of 1807; but they were not set up from the same type, and it is inconceivable that a second issue, set up from different type and with slightly different ornaments, was printed by Ridge for piratical purposes. To cite a few obvious differences—in the title of the large-paper copies the first A of the word "TRANSLATED" is printed

[Greek: L ], and the Greek [Greek: n] in [Greek: ainee] and [Greek: neikei] appears as [Greek: u] (not [Greek: n] reversed); in the Errata on the reverse of p. xiii., [Page] "153 Note" is incorrectly given as "163 Note," and this slip on the part of the falsarius is more remarkable, as two other errata in the Errata are carefully reproduced; in the Greek motto on p. 22 the letter [Greek: r] twice appears as [Greek: s]; and, finally, the ornaments on pp. 1 and 187, though intended to be, are not identical. In the Museum copy a portrait of "Lord Byron, from a sketch taken on his leaving England," engraved by I. West, and "Published by V. Hone, Ludgate Hill, 1819," precedes the title-page, and, together with the binding, affords good, if not conclusive, proof that this copy was printed before 1820.

See, for a correspondence on these L.P. copies of 1807, the Athenum, June, 1898, pp. 694, 695.

See, too, for further interesting and conclusive evidence that the ornament on p. 187 of the L.P. copies was not printed from the Newark block, Newark as a Publishing Town, by T.M. Blagg, 1898, pp. 28-30.

Note (2).—An autograph note, dated May 20th, 1812, signed "Byron," is inserted on the fly-leaf of a large-paper copy in the Rowfant Library (Catalogue, 1886, p. 144).

Hints from Horace.

Note.—Two sets of proofs of a portion of Hints from Horace, formerly the property of R.C. Dallas, are preserved in the British Museum (Eg. 2029). Proof A consists of 100 lines of the English translation (lines 173-272); Proof B, pp. [87]-128, consists of 272 lines of the English translation (lines 1-272) and (on opposite pages) 188 lines of the original Latin. These proof-sheets, which must have followed proofs of the Fifth Edition of English Bards, etc., are preceded by a Half-title, Hints from Horace (Gothic characters), and by the following subsidiary title:—

Hints from Horace:/ Being a/ Partial Imitation, in English Verse, of the Epistle,/ "Ad Pisones de Arte Poetica;"/ And intended as a Sequel to/ English Bards and Scotch Reviewers./ [Gothic characters.] "Ergo fungar vice Cotis, acutum/ Reddere qu ferrum valet, exsors ipsa secandi."/ Hor. De Arte Poet. 304-5./ "Rhymes are difficult things; they are stubborn things, sir."/ Fielding's Amelia, Vol. III./ Book and Chap. V./ Athens, Franciscan Convent,/ March 12, 1811./

The publication of Hints from Horace had been entrusted by Dallas to Cawthorn in July-August, 1811. It may be gathered from various sources (Letters, 1898, ii. 24, 54, 56) that Byron was at work on the proofs as late as September 4; that by October 11 he had resolved to defer the publication of the Hints; and that, accordingly on October 13, 1811, "they stood still." It was not, however, till after the appearance of Childe Harold's, etc. (May-June, 1812) that Byron determined to suppress the already printed Fifth Edition of English Bards, and at the same time to abandon the publication of his two other Satires. At this time, says Dallas (Recollections of the Life of Lord Byron, 1898, p. 241), "the Hints from Horace was far advanced." In his Recollections, etc. (pp. 104-113), he gives, by way of a "fair specimen," 156 "lines of the still-unpublished poem; and, as these extracts are taken from the first 211 lines, and his text corresponds with proof B (see Poetical Works, 1898, i. 390, variants ii., iii.), it may be inferred that Dallas transcribed them from his fragmentary proof-sheets, and that the press was stopped at line 272. In 1830, in his Notices of the Life of Lord Byron (vol. i. pp. 263-269), Moore printed 165 lines of the "Paraphrase;" but his selections are drawn from lines 1-458, and it is evident that he had access to an original MS. (MS. M.), which is now in Mr. Murray's possession. The full text, which follows the same MS., was first published in vol. v. pp. 273-327 of the six-volume edition of 1831 (vide ante, No. xliii. of "Collected Editions").

The Irish Avatar.

Byron wrote the Irish Avatar at Ravenna, September 16, 1821. On the 17th he sent a copy of the verses to Moore, then resident at Paris; and on September 20 he desired Moore to get "twenty copies of the whole carefully and privately printed off." A copy is in the possession of Mr. H. Buxton Forman, C.B., and I am indebted to his kindness for the following description: "The pamphlet consists of four 8vo leaves, viz. half-title ('The Irish Avatar,' in bold capitals, with blank verse), pp. [1], [2] + Text, pp. 3-8. The poem begins on the third page with a dropped head, 'The Irish Avatar' again, and the first four verses. Pp. 4-7 contain six verses each, and p. 8 the remaining four, making up thirty-two in all. The date at the end of p. 8 is 'September 16, 1821.' There is no title-page proper; a headline, 'The Irish Avatar,' occurs on pp. 4-8, which pages are numbered in Arabic figures in the outside corners, and the thirty-two stanzas are also numbered in Arabic figures. The poem is printed on a half-sheet of a peculiar fine-ribbed paper." Twenty stanzas of The Irish Avatar were printed by Medwin in Conversations of Lord Byron, 1824, pp. 216-220, and in a second edition, 1824, pp. 332-338. In a "new edition" of the Conversations, etc., 1824, pp. 264-270, the entire poem, numbering thirty-two stanzas, was published for the first time in England (see Athenum, July 27, 1901). The Irish Avatar was first published by Murray in 1831 (Works, vi. 419-425).

Note.—I am indebted to the kindness of Mr. Leonard L. Mackall, of Berlin, for the substance of the following note on this work:—

"Pages 213-233 of the Anmerkungen" are devoted to an essay on the play as a whole. This essay is evidently the "Appendix to an English Work," to which Byron refers in the letter accompanying the suppressed Dedication to Marino Faliero. "In the Appendix to an English Work, lately translated into German, and published at Leipzig, a judgment of yours upon English poetry is quoted as follows: 'That in English poetry great genius, universal power, a feeling of profundity, with sufficient tenderness and force are to be found, but that altogether these do not constitute poets,'" etc., etc. (see Poetical Works, 1901, v. 340, 341, and Letters, 1900, v. 100-103). The originals of the Dedication and Letters were conveyed to Goethe by John Murray the third, in 1830 (? 1831) (see Goethe-Jahrbuch, 1899, xx. pp. 31-35, where the "Dedication" is printed in full for the first time), and are preserved at Weimar in the "red portfolio" (cf. Eckermann, March 26, 1826), in which Goethe kept all his papers connected with Byron. The "judgments" quoted by Byron through "an Italian abstract" from Wagner's Appendix (pp. 217-218) there read inaccurately as follows: "In der Englischen Poesie," sagt Goethe, "man findet durchaus einen grossen, tchtigen, weltgebten Verstand, ein tiefes, zartes, Gemth, ein vortreffliches Wollen, ein leidenschaftliches Wirken ... das alles zuzammengenommen macht noch keinen Poeten ... nach dieser Ansicht zeigen die meisten Englischen Gedichte einen dstern Ueberdruss des Lebens." These sentences, which should be read in the light of the context, will be found in Goethe's Dichtung und Wahrheit, Th. iii. Buch. 13 (1814, now Wirke, Weimar ed. xxviii. 213, 214), the book (Aus meinem Leben, Dichtung und Wahrheit), which is held up to ridicule in the Edinburgh Review, June, 1816, vol. xxvi. pp. 304-317.
