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.

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."

Great For any Fan of the Famous Author/Classic or Collector. Great Gift Idea; First Visual Depiction of Dr. Frankenstein!!! 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!!!.

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: 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. Probable later state (or mixed state) of the original edition; with "Second Edition" on title page recto of volume 3 (with all title pages dated 1826); lacks publisher's advertisement at rear of volume 1, and with 2 of the author's "just published" titles on colophon of volume 3 (page 352; these being "Frankenstein" and "Valperga", in 2 and 3 volumes respectively). Intriguing early fantasy three-decker, involving the sole remnant of Earth's civilization otherwise obliterated in a raging plague; thus a forerunner of many a later venture of the catastrophist variety in the sci-fi field.
