Many of Jock Murray’s invaluable contributions to Byronic scholarship, publishing and public appreciation are well known but fractured. With the first biography of one of the last gentleman publishers, David McClay brings Jock’s obsession and knowledge of Byron together for the first time and shows the invaluable support he provided for over half a century to numerous scholars leading to a transformational understanding and of Byron’s life and works.
