Condition: See description

New York: Dover Publications, Inc., [1975].. Large octavo, 24 illustrations by Henry Anelay, pictorial wrappers. First printing of this edition. Offset from the text of the first book edition, John Dicks, n.d. [1857?] (originally serialized in REYNOLD'S MAGAZINE OF ROMANCE, GENERAL LITERATURE, SCIENCE AND ART, 6 November 1846-24 July 1847, and, nearly simultaneously, issued in weekly penny parts). New introduction and valuable bibliography by Everett F. Bleiler. "Reynolds provided the first werewolf novel in English -- although there were three or four earlier short stories -- and his work established many motifs and patterns now associated with werewolves, just as Byron-Polidori and Rymer did for vampires. Cubs of 'Wagner' are still to be found in the twentieth century." - Bleiler (ed), Supernatural Fiction Writers: Fantasy and Horror, pp. 207-210.

Michael Bond - the man behind Paddington Bear

"All the same ... it's a very important name. And I don't expect there are many bears in the world called Paddington!"

A lonely toy bear on an empty shop shelf on Christmas Eve in 1956 first captured the attention of Michael Bond, who kindly shared Paddington with the world.
