To the few persons who have not read Lord Byron's poems, but who, after perusing these specimens, will undoubtedly wish to read the whole of them, we beg leave to say, that the only correct editions are published by Mr. Murray, of Albemarle Street, and Messrs. J. & H. L. Hunt of Tavistock Street. The first eight volumes are to be had from the former publisher; the last two volumes from the latter. All other editions are piracies, and infliet even more injury on the sense and poetry of the noble bard, than they do on the property of the proprietors.

Hurriedly, as you may see
Your own run o'er the ivory key,
