About this Item: London: 1823., London, 1823. No Binding. Condition: Very Good. THE SECOND PERFORMANCE OF THE FIRST ENGLISH PRODUCTION. Printed letterpress playbill/broadside, 13" x 7-7/8", stab holes to the left margin presumably bound up at one time, some mild foxing but largely clean and bright. The play's author, Richard Brinsley Peake (1792-1847), was a prolific dramatist of the London popular theatre from 1818 until the time of his death. Presumption! appeared at the Lyceum (the English Opera House) in the late summer of 1823. During the autumn of the same year, other serious adaptations of Frankenstein appeared at the Royalty and the Coburg. The part of the Monster was taken by Thomas Potter Cooke (1786-1864), a former sailor who had already earned popular and critical attention by his performance as Ruthven in The Vampire in 1820. The part of Victor Frankenstein was given to James William Wallack (1791-1864), perhaps the most recognized of the Lyceum's coterie of leading men. Presumption! continued to play with great success through the first half of August, always heading the program and followed by other melodramas, farces, or musical comedies. Although Presumption! was not the first successful Gothic melodrama of the 1820s, the popularity it achieved had an immediate effect on London theatre managements. Presumption! had helped to illuminate a public appetite for horrifying stage fantasies with morally unambiguous resolutions. The play was seen by Mary Shelley and her father William Godwin on 29 August 1823 at the English Opera House, shortly after her return to England. Shelley approved of the way the Creature, played by T.P. Cooke, was represented by a series of dashes in the advertising. Mary Shelley had mixed feelings about the play when it opened but, echoing Lord Byron, wrote: "But lo and behold I found myself famous! Frankenstein had prodigious success as a drama and was about to be repeated for the twenty-third night at the English Royal Opera House". Seller Inventory # 000053

Frankenstein marks the first instance of the use of multiple color block prints in a Pennyroyal book as well as the first collaboration with Joyce Carol Oates, who will do the introductions to Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde and Dracula in time to come" (Pennyroyal).

About this Item: 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. Seller Inventory # 355490716247

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.

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. Seller Inventory # 16494
