Lithograph. Image 200 x 153mm. 7¾ x 6". Sheet 373 x 259mm. 14¾ x 10¼".
William Harrison Ainsworth (1805-1882), Novelist. Ainsworth was an author of popular historical romances. He initially studied law but left it for literature, publishing his first novel anonymously in 1826. His first success came with Rookwood (1834), featuring the highwayman Dick Turpin, which led many reviewers to hail him as the successor to Sir Walter Scott. Jack Sheppard (1839), the story of an eighteenth-century burgular, was equally successful, but its supposed glamorisation of crime proved controversial. From then on Ainsworth switched to historical novels based on places rather than criminals, including The Tower of London (1840),Old St. Paul's, A Tale of the Plague and the Fire (1841), and The Lancashire Witches (1849).

George Gordon Byron, 6th Baron Byron (1788 - 1824), poet. From the painting by William Edward West (1788 - 1857) in the National Galleries of Scotland collection. West made a name for himself as a painter of miniature portraits in his native Kentucky whilst still in his teens. A benefactor financed his studies in Thomas Sully's studio in Philadelphia. He visited Italy in 1819 and stayed in Europe for the next twenty years. In 1825 he moved to London but financial difficulties forced him to go back to America. Washington Irving, Percy Bysshe Shelley and Lord Byron were among his most celebrated sitters.

The statue of Lord Byron by Bertel Thorvaldsen (1770-1844) of 1829. After his death, the poet's friends commissioned a statue by the Danish sculptor Thorvaldsen which they proposed should be set up in Poets' Corner in Westminster Abbey. Mindful of Byron's reputation, the Abbey refused and for some years the statue was homeless before finding a place in Trinity. However, the first proposal to site the statue in the Chapel was also rejected until in 1845 it was placed in its present position in the Wren Library. George Gordon Noel Byron (1788-1824) was a British poet and a leading figure in the Romantic movement. He was celebrated in life for aristocratic excesses including huge debts, numerous love affairs, rumours of a scandalous incestuous liaison with his half-sister, and self-imposed exile. He travelled to fight against the Ottoman Empire in the Greek War of Independence, for which Greeks revere him as a national hero. He died at 36 years old from a fever contracted while in Missolonghi, Greece.
