By Mary Shelley (Author), John Coulthart (Illustrator)

Hardcover and jacketed

For years, Dr. Victor Frankenstein labors to create a new race of intelligent beings. But when he succeeds, Dr. Frankenstein is horrified by the ugly patchwork being he has brought to life, and he abandons his creation—setting off a chain of events that will lead to murder, despair, and bitter loneliness. This is a deluxe, lavish edition that transformed the stormy ethos of the Gothic novel into the foundation of modern science fiction.
