London, John Dicks, n.d. [c1883?]. First Edition. Paperback. A good copy only. Uncommon. In the 19th century Frankenstein was adapted, most famously, by Richard Brinsley Peake. His adaptation included many Frankenstein tropes, such as the hunch-bakced assistant Fritz (later to be Igor) and the immortal line "He's Alive", which here is rendered "It Lives." It could be argued that without Peake's adaptation Frankenstein would have held less popular culture cachet (though it would still, surely have been respected literature regardless) 16pp. Condition is good only, the wrappers are detached and have been taped to fix a large tear. Fixed with tape internally too, to the left hand margin where there appears to be water damage. Each leaf has been fixed thus. Some pencil underlining. Still, it's pretty rare.
