Catalogue Note

VERY RARE. Only four copies of this suppressed satirical poem are recorded in institutional holdings in the UK and USA (British Library, National Library of Scotland, Senate House Library and Princeton). Byron wrote the poem in Cheltenham in October 1812, but never publicly acknowledged it as his.
