Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein

From the Bentley’s Standard Novels series published in 1832 comes the fourth printed edition of Frankenstein, or, The Modern Prometheus. Our version has been marred by stickers and binding tape. Despite these shortcomings, there are two great engravings by W. Chevalier based on the drawings of T. Holst.

Expect more Halloween-themed books this month.
