The Vampyre and Ernestus Berchtold; Or, the Modern Oedipus: Collected Fiction of John William Polidori - signed or inscribed book

1994, ISBN: 9780802005069

Hardcover, ID: 469747895

[Printed by Tuttle, Morehouse & Taylor, New Haven: ., 1876. 39 numbered leaves, printed on the recto only + Armorial Frontis on engraving paper + very large folding genealogical chart. 4to. 310 mm. All edges gold gilt. Original crimson full cloth over beveled boards binding. The boards and spine are decorated with gilt strap designs. Corners worn. Edward E. Salisbury (1814-1901), by permission, gathered this valuable information from the archives of the New Haven Colony Historical Society, and, after some revision, had it privately printed in April 1876. The most famous early member of the family was Giovanni Diodati or Deodati (1576-1649), a Swiss theologian and translator. He was the first person to translate the Bible into Italian from Hebrew and Greek sources. He was born at Geneva, of a noble family originally from Lucca which had been exiled on account of its Protestantism. John Milton supposedly vacationed at the Villa Diodati in 1639. In 1816 it was the summer residence of Lord Byron, Mary Shelley, Percy Shelley, John Polidori and others - and thus the first home of Frankenstein and The Vampyre. Hardbound. Very good. This original edition is very scarce. . **PRICE JUST REDUCED! NEW ENGLAND 5. Hardcover. Good., [Printed by Tuttle, Morehouse & Taylor, New Haven: ., 1876, John Murray. London. 1817.

Slight surface wear to spine. Occasional toning/spotting. An attractive copy, with the Hamlet quote to title (Wise I, 123).A failing marriage, and his incestuous affair saw Byron bolt in 1816 to Switzerland in June, after his sojourn in May with Pryce Gordon at Waterloo, never to return. The "year without a summer" saw the Geneva Circle, including Byron, the Shelleys, and John William Polidori, entertain themselves telling German ghost stories while the unrelenting rain fell that June. In August Monk Lewis visited, and translated passages from Faust. Here the ghost story competition was proposed: from it followed Frankenstein, The Vampyre and Manfred. Byron was delighted with Goethe's review of Manfred written in 1817. "This singular intellectual poet has taken my Faustus to himself.", John Murray, 1817, University of Toronto Press, 1994-03.
