Very crisp, clean book -- no names or writing, no tears or chips, no price-clip and jacket protected by brand new mylar cover. Not commonly seen in the U.S.. A fascinating book which posits that Frankenstein, one of the most notorious characters in horror fiction, was based on the life of an eccentric British scientist named Andrew Crosse who in his makeshift lab filled with bizarre equipment managed to do in real life what Frankenstein did on the page. Illustrated with photos and drawings. 166 pages. View More...
