Consultant Editor, Department of English, University of Virginia
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.' The second part features 71 volumes containing 29 key works, ranging from first editions of Zastrozzi by Shelley and The Vampyre by Polidori, to less familiar texts by authors such as Anna Mackenzie, Charles Maturin, John Palmer, junior, Eliza Parsons, Mary Pilkington, Regina Maria Roche, Louisa Stanhope, George Walker, Mrs R P M Yorke and Heinrich Zschokke.
