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
