Rare Printed Works from the Sadleir-Black Collection of Gothic Fiction at the Alderman Library, University of Virginia

Part 2: Matthew Lewis and Gothic Horror - MacKenzie to Zschokke

“The collection is of unique interest, and should have a ready sale to universities that lack the resources here. Gothic studies are increasingly popular with students and yet the texts beyond the most famous writers are extremely rare and hard to come by.”
Alison Milbank
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.
