[LANDOR, Walter Savage].
Count Julian: a Tragedy.
First edition of Landor’s first play, unacted, but a succès d’éstime, published in ‘a small edition’ (Oxford DNB). The episode in Spanish history which it treats – the vengeance taken by Don Julián, 8th-century ruler of Ceuta, against Roderigo, King of the Goths, who has dishonoured Julián’s daughter – was also used by Walter Scott (The Vision of Don Roderick, 1811), Southey (Roderick, the last of the Goths, 1814) and, earlier, William Rowley (All’s lost by Lust, 1633).
BYRON’S FRIEND ADAPTS A PLAY BY JOHN FLETCHER KINNAIRD, Douglas.
The Merchant of Bruges; or, Beggar’s Bush. With considerable Alterations and Additions. Now performing, with universal Applause, at the Theatre Royal, Drury Lane.
First edition of the only literary work by the intimate friend and banker of Lord Byron, who dedicated Hebrew Melodies to him in 1815. The play was produced at Drury Lane where both served on the Committee, dedicated to Lady Caroline Lamb’s brother-in-law (who contributed three songs), and has a prologue and epilogue by John Cam Hobhouse.
