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: G. and W. B. Whittaker, London, 1823. Full-Leather. Book Condition: Very Good. No Jacket. Second Edition. Two volumes bound as one in contemporaneous full leather, with gilt tooling, the title page for the second volume has been retained, but the half-titles are lacking. There is a neat repair to the join of the front board and spine and the join at the rear board is fragile, with superficial cracking, the leather is clean, though slightly bumped and rubbed, and the gilt is bright. The text block is firm and square, the pages are slightly toned, with some minor marks and spots of foxing, but for the most part clean, there is a bookplate to the front pastedown, which indicates that the book was originally owned by Richard Strachey of Ashwick Grove. The second edition of one of the most influential horror novels ever written, the first to proclaim Shelley as the author, it also includes a number of significant changes, probably made by her father, William Godwin, but incorporated by Shelley into the 1831 edition.

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.

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."

ATTRIBUTES: A Beautiful, sleek marble cover design with nice black morocco leather binding/corners, gold borders, gold trim/labeling with raised bands to the spine, black end pages, marble page edges, with a new Introduction by the Author dated 101/5/1831, with a great frontispiece and vignette title page and a Legendary Classic!!! SUMMARIES: Frankenstein; or, The Modern Prometheus, is a novel written by English author Mary Shelley about the young student of science Victor Frankenstein, who creates a grotesque but sentient creature in an unorthodox scientific experiment. Shelley started writing the story when she was eighteen, and the novel was published when she was twenty. The first edition was published anonymously in London in 1818. Shelley's name appears on the second edition, published in France in 1831. Frankenstein is infused with elements of the Gothic novel and the Romantic movement and is also considered to be one of the earliest examples of science fiction. Brian Aldiss has argued that it should be considered the first true science fiction story, because unlike in previous stories with fantastical elements resembling those of later science fiction, the central character "makes a deliberate decision" and "turns to modern experiments in the laboratory" to achieve fantastic results. It has had a considerable influence across literature and popular culture and spawned a complete genre of horror stories, films, and plays. The Ghost-Seer (full title: Der Geisterseher – Aus den Papieren des Grafen von O**; literally, The Ghost-Seer – From the papers of the Count of O**) or The Apparitionist is an unfinished novel by Friedrich Schiller. It first appeared in several installments from 1787 to 1789 in the journal Thalia, later appearing as a three-volume book in its own right. Although it remained unfinished, its audiences were the largest for any of Schiller's work during his lifetime. The readership was attracted by its elements typical of the time, such as necromancy, spiritualism and conspiracies. BACKGROUND: Mary Wollstonecraft Shelley (née Godwin; 30 August 1797 – 1 February 1851) was an English novelist, short story writer, dramatist, essayist, biographer, and travel writer, best known for her Gothic novel Frankenstein: or, The Modern Prometheus (1818). She also edited and promoted the works of her husband, the Romantic poet and philosopher Percy Bysshe Shelley. Her father was the political philosopher William Godwin, and her mother was the philosopher and feminist Mary Wollstonecraft. In 1831 Mary substantially re-edited the work and added a new preface. The new text was published in a cheaper popular format as one of Richard Bentley’s Standard Novels, together with another Gothic novel entitled The Ghost-Seer. This was also the first illustrated edition of Frankenstein, featuring an engraved frontispiece that was the first visual depiction of Dr. Frankenstein and the Creature. CONDITION: Condition is Very Good. Small if any outer wear, newer rebinding/end pages, signature John Barlow to upper vignette title page, browned/little blemished frontispiece/vignette title pages, little to title page, small light blemish to a few margins, pages/hinges/text block are very good for over 180 years old!!!.

Item Description: Henry Colburn, London, 1826. 3/4 Leather. Book Condition: Very Good -. Dust Jacket Condition: No Jackets. First Edition, Possible Later Issue. Wear to head and foot of spine of volume 3 (slight cracking at spine edges; slight rubbing); slight rubbing and browning to covers (leather over boards; chiefly to edges); slight internal creases, browning and/or foxing (chiefly to preliminary leaves and edges). xi, [1], 358; [2], 328; [2], 352 pages.

Item Description: Halifax: Milner & Sowerby, 1865. 1st "Cottage Library" edition. Hardback, original maroon cloth. 13cm x 8cm. Yellow endpapers. Contents: pages generally very good, clean and tight (a little fragile between pages 304 & 305). Just a few slight pencil marks and a few slight brown spots. Owner's name at end of text. Owner's signature fep. Pencil notes rubbed out fep and inside front board. Front inner hinge neatly reinforced. Otherwise pages generally very good and clean. Boards: left side of front board generously faded and chipped/scuffed (professionally restored). Spine re-laid. Corners worn and rounded. Top and tail headbands of spine neatly reinforced where frayed and fragile. Spine darkened, with title barely visible. A rare "Cottage Library" edition of Shelley's "Frankenstein - The Man Demon" in original fragile Cottage Library binding. 319 pp. In 1816 Mary Wollstonecraft first conceived the idea of 'Frankenstein' whilst staying at a small cottage with her sister Claire and Percy Shelley in Geneva. The cottage was very close to the fellow author and patron Lord George Byron, who was by this time a household name. The following year, on their return to England, Mary and Shelley rented a house in Marlow, Bucks where she completed her novel 'Frankenstein'. Eventually the novel was first published anonymously in 1818. This small "Cottage Library Edition" uses Mary's full title of Mary Wollstonecraft Shelley. Bookseller Inventory # 16494

Item Description: Pennyroyal Press, Northampton, Massachusetts, 1983. Hardcover. No. 175 OF 350 COPIES. 349 x 254 mm (13 3/4 x 10"). Portfolio: 355 x 260 mm. (14 x 10 1/4") xvi, 282 pp., [2] leaves. Two volumes (including portfolio of prints). With essays by Ruth Mortimer, Emily Sunstein, Joyce Carol Oates, and William St. Clair. No. 175 OF 350 COPIES. Original tan quarter morocco over maroon cloth boards by Sam Ellenport at the Harcourt Bindery, raised bands, maroon leather label with calligraphic titling. In the matching publisher's (just slightly marked) folding cloth box. WITH 52 WOOD ENGRAVINGS BY BARRY MOSER, and with an extra suite of plates in a portfolio, each of the extra plates signed by him. Printed by Harold McGrath in Poliphilus and Wilhelm Klingsporschrift type. "A Century for the Century" 92. Very faint foxing to fore and tail edges of the book block, a half dozen pages with hardly perceptible very small spots of foxing, otherwise spotless and unworn. Moser's dark and haunting wood engravings are well suited to Shelley's classic tale of horror, and the work was acclaimed by the Grolier Club as one of its "Century for the Century." We never see the monster in full here; the artist cleverly shows us only glimpses of the horror and allows our imaginations to elaborate. At the same time, the model for an earnest but fanatical Victor Frankenstein was a very real person--printer Art Larson, who worked with McGrath and Moser in the early 1980s. The layout of the text here is noteworthy, as it echoes the design of 15th century books: most pages are a solid block of letterpress, the paragraph openings marked with tiny cruciform ornaments just as paragraphs in incunables were indicated with small painted flourishes. This design, the typeface (clean, elegant, roman), and the airy spacing make for a page that is striking in its simplicity and, thus reminiscent, not only of early printing, but also particularly of Doves Press books. In addition to the three volumes of the 1818 text of "Frankenstein," this edition includes critical essays by Sunstein, St. Clair, and Oates, and a publishing history by noted bibliographer Ruth Mortimer.
