Mary Shelley

Mary Wollstonecraft Shelley, born in London in 1797, wrote her first book at the age of ten. Not yet 17 years old, she eloped in 1814 with the young poet Percy Shelley, whom she married in 1816. Inspired by reading horror stories, she wrote her first novel "Frankenstein", which caused a scandal and became a great success. After the early death of her husband, Shelley wrote five more novels and short stories. She died in London in 1851.

Shelley - Frankenstein, or the Modern Prometheus

Mary Shelley's iconic book in a special hardcover edition with silver foil embossing. The novel about the young Swiss Victor Frankenstein, who creates an artificial human being, is a rare gem of romantic horror literature: the grandiose narrative skill with which the English author turned her subject into a story that remains popular to this day makes her "Frankenstein" novel stand out far beyond most comparable novels of its era. Hardly any other classic has had as many stage adaptations and film adaptations as Mary Shelley's "Frankenstein". The text of this edition follows the 1831 revised edition.
