about this item

Generations have thrilled to Mary Shelley's 1818 novel, which has inspired countless writers and served as the source for numerous films, plays, and television productions. Combining elements of Gothic novels and Romantic sensibilities,Frankenstein; or, the Modern Prometheus is widely regarded as the first work of science fiction. The story offers a memorable exploration of one man's quest for scientific discovery and immortality as well as a moving consideration of the fate of social outcasts. Newly designed and reset, this handsome hardbound edition reprints all of Nino Carbe's starkly beautiful pen-and-ink drawings and endpieces from one of the earliest illustrated editions, as well as four full-color paintings that the noted Walt Disney artist completed in the 1980s.
