Frankenstein: or, The Modern Prometheus.London: George Routledge and Sons, 1888 Stock Code: 143253
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.
Small octavo. Original red cloth-backed red marbled paper boards, titles in gilt on black ground to spine.
Spine slightly cocked and faintly toned, touch of wear to tips, free endpapers browned; a very good copy.
Bleiler, Science-Fiction 2019.
