Item Description: London: for G. & W. B. Whittaker, 1823, 1823. 2 volumes, duodecimo. Bound to style in half calf, marbled boards, red and black morocco labels. Custom leather-entry slipcase. Some foxing throughout, but a tall copy, complete with half titles. Second edition, the first in which Mary Shelley is named as the author; not merely a reprint of the first edition of 1818 as some have supposed. E. B. Murray notes that there are a good many substantive changes in the 1823 edition, though these were probably made by her father William Godwin, who arranged publication of the second edition "for her benefit" while Mary was still living on the continent. Mary, however, accepted the 1823 text as the basis for her own changes made for the 1831 third edition. E. B. Murray, "Changes in the 1823 Edition of Frankenstein", The Library, 3:4 (December 1981), 320-27. Bookseller Inventory # 51124

Item Description: Philadelphia: Carey, Lea & Blanchard . Chestnut St., 1833. 12mo, two volumes: pp. [1-2] i-x [11] 12-201 [202-204: blank]; [1-5] 6-197 [198-200: blank] + 4 pages of ads inserted at front of volume one and [24]- page publisher's catalogue inserted at rear of volume two, half title leaves and final blanks present in both volumes, original drab boards with red muslin shelf backs, printed paper labels affixed to spine panels, all edges untrimmed. First U.S. edition. The text of this edition follows that of the 1818 UK first edition; it is a pirated edition according to Lyles. "FRANKENSTEIN is at once a Gothic horror tale and the first important science fiction novel. Its sustained popularity and place in modern myth is probably as much due to the innumerable stage, film, television, comic book and radio adaptations of it -- most of which depart completely from the text -- as to the strength of the work itself." - Jones and Newman (eds), Horror: 100 Best Books 8. Anatomy of Wonder (1976) 1-47; (1981) 1- 150; (1987) 1-84; (1995) 1-84; and (2004) II-997. Barron (ed), Horror Literature 1-97. Bleiler, Science- Fiction: The Early Years 2019.

Spine panels sunned, several damp stains to boards, largely bottom quarter of volume one. A contemporary William Crosby & Co. circulating library copy with their labels (partially effaced) affixed to front paste-downs, abrasions and scuffs to paste-downs where paper protective dust jackets were removed, volume two lacks front free endpaper, contemporary owner's name and date on recto of half title leaf of volume two partially inked out with some transfer of ink onto title leaf, scattered foxing to text blocks of both volumes. Despite all faults, an unsophisticated copy, which presents well externally. As an added bonus, there are some marginalia in pencil and ink on pages 179, 196 and 197 by three contemporary readers, one terming the story "a damned lie," another calling it "the most ridiculous book that ever was written," and the third calling it "profound" and the earlier readers "stupid." Enclosed in a custom quarter leather folding box. (#75682). Bookseller Inventory # 75682

Item Description: John Murray. London 1818, 1818. Soft cover. 1st Edition. First Edition. Original printed wrappers, Octavo, no. XXXVI, January 1818 issue (published in June) of Volume XVIII. The earliest of the five contemporary reviews of the first edition of Shelly's masterpiece of horror and gender commentary. This article, p. 379 to p. 385, six pages in length, contains three pages primarily excerpted from the book, the small print of which probably allowed for several pages of the novel's text to be copied here within. The review has been attributed to John Wilson Croker, a well known critic in his time and is considered to be the least appreciative of Shelly's literary abilities. He writes: "Our readers will guess from this summary, what a tissue of horrible and disgusting absurdity this work presents. -- It is piously dedicated to Mr. Godwin, and is written in the spirit of his school. The dreams of insanity are embodied in the strong and striking language of the insane, and the author, notwithstanding the rationality of his preface, often leaves us in doubt whether he is not as mad as his hero." Extremely scarce issue of this important early 19th Century periodical to be found in original wrappers. A Very Good attractive number with some minor loss to wraps at spine ends. 0.0.
