J.M. Dent & Sons Ltd & E.P. Dutton & Co Inc, London & New York 1951 - Stated on the Copyright Page: First published in this edition 1921. Last reprinted 1951. - A vibrant facsimile dustjacket that was produced from an original dustjacket houses this book. It states on the inner front prelim: FRANKENSTEIN - Book No. 364. - The World's Most Famous Shocker! HORROR! - FASCINATION! - ROMANCE! - Vaunting ambition led Frankenstein to try and outdo Nature. So he created a monster. It could walk, talk, breathe and eat like a human being. He gave it life- and it took the life of others. He could not control it, neither reason nor pity turned it from its ruthless course. This masterpiece is the transcript of the grim terrors of Mary Shelley's waking dream. And this edition is exactly as Mrs. Shelley wrote it. - A classic thriller that really thrills. - This dustjacket came from a book that was knows as 'The First UK Photoplay Edition from 1931, which was released the same year as the classic 1931 film directed by James Whale. An important photoplay edition, as it was the first to feature a photo of Boris Karloff as the Frankenstein monster on the jacket. The upper front panel is actually a still from the film showing Boris Karloff as the monster. The original dustjacket that this facsimile was produced from was in a beautiful condition, and it looks great! Boards are a red coloured cloth with gold/gilt decoration to the spine and blind tooling to the front board. Retains colour although has some light soiling and fading in general. Tightly bound to the inner page block. Inside the book: Price of 5/- [five shillings] written in pencil on the front decorated end-page]. Apart from minor foxing, the pages are clean and all pages are tightly bound. - Thanks for your interest and I hope you like the book enough to buy it. - END - Our orders are shipped within 1 or 2 business days.
