Stowe, Harriet Beecher.  Lady Byron vindicated. A history of the Byron controversy, from its beginning in 1816 to the present time. Boston: Fields, Osgood & Co., 1870. 8vo (18.2 cm, 7.16"). 6, [2], 482, [2 (blank)] pp.
$175.00

First edition of Stowe's impassioned — and highly unpopular — defense of the life and accomplishments of the late Lady Byron. Expanded from her 1869 article in The Atlantic Monthly, this book-length treatment of the subject attacks Lord Byron's conduct, his sanity, and his poetry.
        Provenance: From the collection of Robert Sadoff, M.D., forensic psychiatrist and director of Penn's Center for Studies in Social-Legal Psychiatry, sans indicia.

BAL 19456. Publisher's purple cloth, covers framed in blind, spine with gilt-stamped title; very slightly cocked with spine sunned, minor shelfwear to extremities, and small spots of minor discoloration to sides. Pages evenly age-toned. => A clean, solid, very readable copy of a notoriously readable book.  (39342)   Please RESHELVE This.
