254pp. Quarto [31 cm] Black cloth over boards with metallic red stamping on the spine and front cover. Red and burgundy floral endpapers. Publisher's red top stain. Pennyroyal edition with text based on the 1818 edition of Frankenstein. Very good. The edges of the spine and covers are just a little faded. In a very good dust jacket, with rubbing to the surface.
Gorgeously illustrated with wood engravings by Barry Moser. Moser's primarily black and white wood engravings add atmosphere and tension to the story, and his use of just a few splashes of color shocks the eye in exactly the right places.
