Rare Printed Works from the Sadleir-Black Collection of Gothic Fiction at the Alderman Library, University of Virginia
Part 1: Matthew Lewis and Gothic Horror - Beckford to Lewis
The aim of this microfilm project is to make available a wide variety of Gothic texts, placing a special emphasis on material that is extremely rare or difficult to consult. To bring this within the compass of most libraries this has been divided into a number of thematic groupings.
Parts 1 & 2 cover 'Matthew Lewis and Gothic Horror.' This first part features 92 volumes containing 35 key works, ranging from first editions of An Arabian Tale by William Beckford and Romantic Tales by Monk Lewis; to less familiar texts by authors such as George Brewer, Denis Diderot, Charlotte Dacre, Joseph Fox, Sophia Francis, Carl Grosse, Ann Hatton, William Henry Ireland, Harriet Jones, Francis Lathom, and Caroline Lamb.
