Abstract:

The George Gordon Byron papers consist of manuscripts, letters, an account book, engravings, handwritten musical scores, wills and other documents, and clippings, all ranging in date from 1642 to 1968, with the majority dating from 1798-1830. While most of the manuscripts in the Works series are in Byron's hand, some are copies in the hand of his wife, Anne Isabella Milbanke Byron, and other persons. Typescript copies are also present. Among Byron's manuscripts are Cain, A Mystery; Canto VIII and Canto IX of Don Juan; The Island: Or, Christian and His Comrades; Ode to Napoléon Buonaparte; Sardanapolus; and The Siege of Corinth. English Bards, and Scotch Reviewers is represented by a handwritten fragment by Byron, as well as a bound copy in an unidentified hand; an 1817 bound copy in an unidentified hand of the fourth edition; and a printed book interleaved with pasted-in autographs, manuscript notes, portraits of well-known authors, and copies of poems about Byron dating from 1812-1819. Many of Byron's short poems are present, including "Childish Recollections," "I Saw Thee Weep," "To a Knot of Ungenerous Critics," and "To E.N. Long." Also included are an account book dating from 1819 to 1820, with additional entries by Teresa Guiccioli, and a draft and final copy of Byron's 1811 will.

The Correspondence series is divided into two subseries: A. Letters, 1806-1831, undated; and B. Bound Letters, 1798-1832, 1859, undated. Most of the correspondence consists of outgoing letters from Byron. Series III., Third Party Correspondence and Manuscripts, includes letters and manuscript poems by Anne Isabella Milbanke Byron; correspondence by Catherine Gordon Byron; musical manuscripts by Thomas Hastings, including the opera he composed based on Byron's Manfred; and a manuscript by Elizabeth Bridget Pigot of "The Wonderful History of Lord Byron & His Dog," as well as correspondence by other individuals. Within numbered miscellaneous groups, there are letters from Augusta Leigh to Anne Isabella Milbanke Byron, Francis Hodgson, and other persons; letters regarding Byron's birth; letters from Teresa Guiccioli regarding Byron; a bound collection of poems, articles, and other materials relating to Byron;, and letters from Anne Isabella Milbanke Bryon, primarily to her friend Harriet Siddons.

A complete Index of Correspondents in the Byron archive is located at the end of the finding aid. All works by Byron and others are listed in an Index of Works.
