A lovely example of Routledge's Pocket Library edition of Mary Shelley's Frankenstein. Shelley's pioneering work was first published in 1818. The definitive, expanded, text, which includes a new chapter and the celebrated Preface in which she describes the novel's genesis in the nocturnal storytelling session at the Villa Diodati, was published in 1831, and it is this text which is published here.
