Ecce Frankenstein

The original hand-written manuscript to Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein, considered by some to be the first science fiction novel, will be on display at the Bodleian Libraries in Oxford as part of the display Shelley’s Ghost: Reshaping the Image of a Literary Family, scheduled to run from December 3 through March 27. This is the first time the manuscript has been displayed publicly. After the exhibit closes in Oxford, it will move to the New York Public Library.
