Item Description: London: for Lackington, Hughes, Harding, Mavor, & Jones, 1818, 1818. 3 volumes, duodecimo (177 × 107 mm). Bound to an attractive contemporary style in 20th-century tan full smooth morocco, spines gilt-ruled in compartments with two black morocco title labels to each, sides bordered with a double gilt rule, marbled endpapers, blind-rolled turn-ins, speckled edges. Housed in a brown morocco-backed bookform folding case. Half title to volume 2, advertisements at the rear of volumes 2 and 3. Mild offset toning and some very light spotting, top edges somewhat dust-darkened, but an excellent copy, well-margined for a later binding, which is appealingly done to style. First edition of Mary Shelley's masterpiece of Gothic horror and early polemic against the hubris of modern science, one of 500 copies printed. Written when Mary Shelley was only 19, Frankenstein is not the only memorable remnant of that "wet, ungenial summer" of 1816 at the Villa Diodati (Polidori's The Vampyre has the same origin), but it is certainly the most famous. Frankenstein effortlessly transcends the typical Gothic novel: ruined castles, graveyards and charnel houses appear only briefly or in the distance, and diabolical agency is replaced by human, natural and scientific powers. And unlike most Gothic novels Frankenstein is modern rather than mock-medieval: Mary Shelley managed to reconcile the Prometheus theme, then occupying both her husband Percy Bysshe Shelley and Lord Byron, with the most up-to-date scientific preoccupations, anticipating many of the themes of science fiction. The book's moral and philosophical seriousness, sign-posted by its epigraph "Did I request thee, Maker, from my clay / To mould me man? Did I solicit thee / From darkness to promote me?" from Paradise Lost (which the Shelleys were reading together in Bath when much of Frankenstein was written), pitches it still further above the level of gothic sensationalism. Her husband's editorial hand has been noted in various places, particularly in the unsigned preface describing the circumstances of its origin and in the plangent cadences of the closing paragraph.

Item Description: Colburn & Bentley, 1831, 1831. 1st edition with frontispiece illustration, 3rd edition overall. Hardcover. Small 8vo. Half-leather binding with matching corner pieces, marbled boards with minor chafing, a little eroding to corners and along spine folds, gilt spine title and decoration, all in very good condition. 202 pages + xii prelims. From the Gladstone library at Fasque, near Aberdeen, evidenced by the Fasque bookplate on the fpd (William Gladstone, when Prime Minister, often stayed at Fasque). The 1831 edition is notable for three reasons: the frontispiece is the first depiction of the monster; the book contains Mary Shelley's introduction, written at the request of the publishers to explain the origin and gestation of her story; and after her revisions to the text this is now regarded as the standard edition. Very clean pages, tissue guard over engraved title page, nice marbled endpapers. A very good, stand-alone copy of Shelley's famous novel. Bookseller Inventory # PSHB6696

Item Description: Khudozhestvennai¿¿a Literatura, Moscow, 1965. Soft cover. Book Condition: Very Good. Dust Jacket Condition: Very Good. 1st Edition. First Edition in Russian. Translated by E. Aleksandrova. 245pp (3). 13.5 x 17cm. Original cloth covered boards. Original illustrated dustjacket. Minor even toning to paper stock. Very minor rubbing wraps, very minor nudging foot, cap of spine, corners. Light even soiling to jacket, minor shallow creasing, minor rubbing foot, cap of spine, corners. The first edition in Russian of Shelley's Frankenstein. The Soviet's were deservedly boastful of their publishing capabilities; from the 1920's onwards print runs of a million were common and each year their printing presses were producing 64,000 books which accounted for over a billion copies. Every book released was pre-approved by the censors who held absolute authority over what was published and what was not. As a result quite a few great Western classics long held in the West as being canon were never issued until over a hundred years after the original edition. During the Thaw cultural overtures to the West resulted in several great works being issued which continued until the early 70's, among them Frankenstein. The document of a fantastic piece of Soviet ideological engineering, its rarity can be attributed to how many books disappeared underground with the ascent of Brezhnev. Every attempt is made to describe books accurately and fairly. If you have any further questions on this book or any other we may have in stock do get in touch. Bookseller Inventory # 000034
