Éditeur : Printed for J. Burkitt, for T. Cadell, Junior, and W. Davies, Strand, London, Sudbury

Date d'édition : 1800

Description :

Small quarto, two volumes: pp. [1-6] [i] ii-iv [v-vi] [i] ii [1-2] [1] 2-455 [456: blank]; [1-4] [i] ii [1] 2-479 [480: blank] [i] ii-x, half title leaves present in both volumes, full old calf, rather crudely but soundly rebacked. Second edition, enlarged. A miscellany of poems, essays and short stories, many of the latter being supernatural or Gothic. This 1800 edition has forty '"Hours," nine new to this edition, others here corrected and enlarged. This edition includes "essays on the operation of the Gothic aesthetic and response to various supernatural experiences as well as short tales of terror illustrating his discussion of Gothic narrative theory. 'On Gothic Superstition' (hour number 6 [here number 8]), and 'On Objects of Terror' (hour number 15 [here number 17]), are landmarks in Gothic criticism. The outstanding piece in the collection is the Radcliffean set piece, 'The Abbey of Clunedale.'" - Barron (ed), Horror Literature 1-25. Summers, A Gothic Bibliography, p. 37. Tymn (ed), Horror Literature 1-99. NCBEL III 1279. Bleiler (1978), p. 64. Calf worn at edges, some scattered foxing, a sound, good copy. (#138261). N° de réf. du libraire 138261
