First edition. The author's first play. "A popular and frequently revived Gothic drama, BERTRAM was first given at Drury Lane on May 9, 1816, with the renowned Edmund Kean as Bertram.

Among the Gothic dramas of the period, many of them mediocre, BERTRAM deserves to remain the preeminent Gothic stage spectacle." - Tymn (ed), Horror Literature 1-242.
