Footnotes

  • THE SCARCE SECOND EDITION OF MARY SHELLEY'S GOTHIC MASTERPIECE, the first to carry the author's name and to include her preface. Copies in original boards are particularly rare: only four sets of this edition are listed as having sold at auction in over thirty years, and none were in boards.
