    Description

    Frankenstein (Universal, 1931). Fine+. Herald (Closed: 8.25" X 10.25, Opened: 16.5 "X 10.25").
    James Whale was given the assignment to film Mary Shelley's novel for the big screen. The result was...electrifying! Unknown actor Boris Karloff in the pivotal role as the Monster made the part unique. To this day, almost 90 years after the film was released, Karloff's image is recognized around the world and although there have been many sequels and other adaptations, this remains the version all others are measured against. The herald shows edge and spine wear, a complete spine separation, pinholes, and minor tears. There are small chips in the borders and spine, and the back cover has a couple of dust shadows and stains. The herald displays brittleness, and the spine has been braced with two small pieces of archival tape on the interior. Fine+.


    Estimate: $800 - $1,600.
