London: No Publisher, 1793. First published anonymously in 1764, this is the defining work by Horace (Horatio) Walpole (1717-1797) and is acknowledged to be the first Gothic novel in English literature. This is a Very Good (Minus) copy of a later printing ("A New Edition") without a named publisher. Full leather binding; smooth calf, with decorative ruling. Clean text; xv, 200 pages. The textblock is Fine, very bright and clear, free of any foxing. However, the front board has detached, taking the half-title with it; both are present. Please note the condition issue. Quercus must offer this as a Binding Copy, in need of restoration or repair. Because of the quality text, Quercus believes this an excellent candidate for a nice rebind.. First Thus. Full-Leather. Very Good (Minus)/No Jacket. 16mo - over 5" - 6" tall. First Edition.
