More Information
Ann Radcliffe, born 1764 and died 1823, was an English Gothic novelist. Whilst her work is regarded as somewhat dated, and perhaps not in the same league as some other authors, her importance cannot be overlooked. Her work unquestionably influenced the biggest names in the genre who later gave us Frankenstein and Dracula. Her plot lines consisted mainly of a terrified girl that flees her pursuers, usually a ghost or mad monk, only to be caught before escaping again. Whilst a well used formula it can, and does, still work, the major criticism here being a general lack of character depth and interest. Collectors are well aware of her importance and influence, consequently her 1st editions are much sought after. The true first impressions are all regarded as rare and none of the books listed could be regarded as cheap. Collecting a full set would be an achievement and, if possible, beyond many peoples financial limitations. To that end there are some lovely period reissues which can make a very attractive alternative both visually and financially.
