Arguably the most offensive, despised, and ridiculed dandy of the Regency period, Sir James Webster-Wedderburn would likely be forgotten were it not for an alleged affair between his wife and his close friend, the poet Lord Byron. This unique work lays out the details of this affair and provides commentary on rare private letters between Webster's wife, Lady Frances Caroline Annesley, and the famous poet. Also included are analyses and transcriptions of Lady Frances' letters to other alleged suitors, including the Duke of Wellington and another Regency dandy, Scrope Davies.
