The fortunes of Perkin Warbeck : a romance by Mary Wollstonecraft Shelley( Book )
10 editions published between 1996 and 2006 in English and held by 114 libraries worldwide
"In this novel, Shelley sets out with the somewhat startling statement of her firm belief that Perkin Warbeck was in reality the lost Duke of York. She is of opinion, that it is impossible for anyone to examine the records in the Tower without arriving at the same conclusion; and sometimes even in the course of the story, we think she overlooks the resemblance of the romance in her eagerness to impress upon the reader her own peculiar view of the historical fact. The various adventures of the unfortunate Perkin, (or the young Prince, as she will have it,) from his escape out of the Tower in childhood to the termination of his career upon the scaffold, form the subject-matter of the work. The characters are skillfully portrayed, and well contrasted with each other, while the descriptions are full, clear, and powerful. Throughout, indeed, the book is written with great energy, both of thought and expression, as well as with all that feminine delicacy of feeling and perception which throws such a peculiar charm over the actions penned by an accomplished woman." --back cover

"The grand Napoleon of the realms of rhyme" : Byron and history by Doucet Devin Fischer( Archival Material )
6 editions published between 1989 and 1990 in English and held by 5 libraries worldwide
From the moment he could read, Byron admitted, history had been his "grand passion." Both the public record of his poetry and the private record of his letters and journals support the truth of this confession. When Byron imposed form upon what he called in Don Juan his "materials," he relied not only upon first-hand observations made in the course of his travels, but also upon notions of history derived from the Greek and Roman authors, the works of the French philosophes, the histories of Hume, Gibbon, and Robertson, and the writings of Burke, de Stael, Foscolo, and Scott. Although Byron's poetry was informed by divergent visions of history, he retained a primary allegiance to geopolitical realities and the facts of observation. The war, the rise and fall of Napoleon, the return of legitimacy after Waterloo, and the continuing threat of revolution shaped Byron's sensibilities and his works
