William Blackwood, T. Cadell, 1832.

First edition. 12mo. Contemporary petrol blue morocco style cloth, with paper title label to the spine. Blue silk page marker present. A very good copy indeed, lacking terminal adverts. Some spotting to the preliminaries and bookplate to the front pastedown.

De Quincey's only original novel, a Gothic romance influenced by his early love of the works of Ann Radcliffe . In 1907 his daughter, Emily, wrote "The novels of his youth were of the Mrs Radcliffe order full of mysteries, murders, highwaymen, mysterious people and dark corners ."
