KIRKUS REVIEW

The mushrooming interest in the daughter of Mary Wollstonecraft and William Godwin/wife of Shelley/author of Frankenstein guarantees an audience for this complete, authoritative edition of her stories regardless of whether, as the editor believes, they enhance her reputation. Included along with extensive notes are the illustrations that accompanied the stories in The Keepsake series of English literary annuals, and in some cases--according to 19th-century practice--preceded them. A scholarly work that is also quite evidently a labor of love.
