Item Description: Reader's Library, London, 1936. Hard Cover. Dust Jacket Condition: Dust Jacket. First Edition. (London: The Readers Library, no date [1936]). First UK Edition. Issued simultaneously as a 'library edition' under the Queensway Press imprint. A VG copy (faint stain to foot of book spine; pages tanned) in like D/W with fading to spine and shallow chip to foot of spine, left corner). This book is the movie novelisation of the 1935 film of the same name, a classic masterpiece of 1930's horror films, and a superior sequel to the original prototype Frankenstein from 1931. Generally considered one of the greatest horror films of all time, the film reunited Colin Clive (as Dr. Frankenstein) with Boris Karloff as the Monster, but brought two new characters to the forefront: Ernest Thesiger as a necromancer who has miniaturized and imprisoned various human beings in glass jars, and Elsa Lanchester as the Monster's Bride. The front panel of this book is a colour illustration of Karloff and Elsa Lanchester. Scans invited. Rare. Bookseller Inventory # 355490716247

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
