London by William Clowes and Sons Ltd for the Descendants of Lord and Lady Byron. 1887. pp. (iv), 249. 8vo. Original boards, paper spine and label, spine slightly dulled, back board slightly marked. The half title states '(No publication of the contents of this volume may take place without authorisation in writing from Lord Wentworth or Lady Noel Byron's other representatives.) Thirty-six copies only have been printed, of which this is number 27.' Inscribed on the inside front board in biro 'Given to me by Ly Wentworth. C. Draper.' Ralph Milbanke's title at the date of publication of this book was Lord Wentworth. He was the grandson of the poet Lord Byron and the son of Ada Lovelace. On his death in 1906 the Barony of Wentworth devolved on his only child, Ada Mary. On her death in 1917 the title passed to her aunt, Anne Isabella Noel, wife of Wilfred Scawen Blunt, who died in 1922. The title then passed to their only surviving child Judith Anne Dorothea Blunt-Lytton, owner of the Crabbet Arabian Stud. On her death in 1957 the title passed to her son, the Earl of Lytton. Biro pens were not invented until 1938, so, although one cannot be sure of when the biro inscription was written it can be assumed that the donor of the book to C. Draper was Judith Blunt-Lytton. Wise Vol 2, p.111. Wise says 'I suppose this must be the most hopelessly unobtainable book in the whole series of Byroniana ... Of the thirty-six copies printed a few only were distributed; the larger proportion of the issue was destroyed.'

Manuscripts 1849 - 1852. 2 volumes. pp. 123; 105 leaves of MS plus 74 blank leaves in the second volume approximately. Small folios. Reverse calf with leather spine labels, Vol 2 with two tears to the calf. Vol 1 reads Visct. Ockham's Log on Bd H.M.S. Swift 1849. Champion 1850. Daphne 1851. Vol 2 reads Viscount Ockham's Log H.M.S. Daphne 1850 - 1851. These dates are inaccurate, the logs cover from July 3rd 1849 to August 5th 1852. The logs cover Lord Ockham's voyages from Plymouth Sound to Sullivan's Cove, Hobarton (Hobart, Tasmania), then via New Zealand to Valparaiso in Chile, where on the 8th February 1850 he changed ships and joined HMS Champion. Sailing in Champion up to Guayaquil in Ecuador via Callao in Peru, returning to Valparaiso and again changing ships, this time to HMS Daphne on 18th June 1850. He remained on Daphne sailing up the western seaboard of the Americas as far north as Beaver Harbour, a bay on northern Vancouver Island (10th July 1851). Daphne worked her way back down the western seaboard, around Cape Horn, up to Rio de Janiero(19th June 1852) and returning to British water August 5th 1852. The last entry reads Eddystone Lighthouse NW 7 or 8 miles. Further information available on request. Information on Byron's grandson, Lord Ockham, is sparse but Doris Langley Moore in her biography of his mother, Ada Countess of Lovelace. Byron's Legitimate Daughter mentions him enough to give an outline of his upbringing and character. Moore studied, among other sources, the letters of Lady Byron in the Sedley Taylor Collection at Cambridge University; the Somerville Papers in the Bodleian Library; also at the Bodleian and most importantly the Lovelace Papers. From these she knew that Ockham had 'sailed away in the Swift en route for Van Diemen's Land' (p257) but she knew nothing of the Champion or when he transferred to the Daphne - 'At some date which I cannot pinpoint he was transferred to the Daphne, but this may have taken place in a foreign port for I have not found any sign that he had shore leave in England.' (p283), he did not have shore leave in Britain as these logs tell us. Letters were rare, Lady Lovelace wrote after receiving one from Ockham 'I have been much ... alarmed ... mentionig that he is very unwell, that their purser in convulsions after 12 hours illness had died, & that it was fearfully unhealthy - 'there being scarcely any ship there but what loses some officers.' In his Log, Ockham describes the same event 'Sunday Sept 29th 1850. At single anchor off Mazatlan (Mexico). 8. Departed this Life, Mr John R. Bluett, Esq., Paymaster & Purser.' This text is edged in black and Ockham notes the next day that a Party was sent on shore to bury Mr Bluett. The Daphne had been anchored off Mazatlan since August 14th. This comparison illustrates how emotionless, matter of fact and lacking in human detail the log is. It is all to do with the ship's course and position, wind direction and work required. Work included washing clothes, painting the ship, cleaning guns, blacking down rigging, washing decks, exercising newly raised men, cutlass exercise, exercising young gentlemen at gun drill, exercising marines at musket drill, scrapping masts, & receiving provisions on board . Other vessels in port or passed are noted. He does note on February 10th 1850, having just joined HMS Champion, that 'Punished Jno. Main (AB) with 36 lashes. And Wm Cox (?) with 24 lashes as per Warrants. He does not state what their crime was
