Mary Wollstonecraft Godwin, 1759-1797: a Bibliography of the First and Early Editions, With Briefer Notes on Later Editions and Translations.

New Castle: Oak Knoll Press, 2000. 8vo, 24 cm, xvi, 71 pp. Illustrated with a tipped-in color frontispiece portrait, two other portrtaits, and b/w illustrations of the title-pages of the books. Original red cloth lettered in gilt, as new. Inscribed to Jeffrey Thomas by the author. This second edition (of the work first published in 1988) is substantially revised and greatly enlarged to include a bibliography of books about Mary Wollstonecraft Godwin and a chronology of her life. "This listing of the writings of Mary Wollstonecraft Godwin (1759-1797) mother of Mary Wolistonecraft Godwin Shelley (wife of Percy Bysshe Shelley and author of Frankenstein), was originally compiled from collections in the Huntington Library (San Marino, California) and the William Andrews Clark Library (University of California, Los Angeles), from catalogue descriptions provided by the Carl H. Pforzheimer Shelley and His Circle Collection at New York Public Library, and from copies seen in private collections and the antiquarian book trade. In 1988 I published my findings privately in a slim monograph for the use of collectors, librarians, and dealers. Since that time, every title that has been directed to my attention has been re-collated against the original entry and, thanks to the Internet, every title has been checked in ESTC on line and in RLIN as well as in the references listed below. This has resulted in substantial changes from the first version of my work, which must now be disposed of in favor of this edition."- from Windle’s introduction. Item #110504
